Lyndi's Zoe

plaid Zoe dress: after cutting out this pattern about 9 months ago & leaving it in a box cuz i was too scared to continue, i bit the bullet this weekend and i’m SO proud of my dress. i wore it to work today:) i will make some alterations if i use the pattern again: raise the waistline, add the loops for a belt, make the back of the shoulders smaller as it gapes a little & make the skirt longer (i have to wear thick black tights as the skirt is very short!!). i would probably line it too but i’m ok with the unlined version for now!

Material Notes

plaid cotton, interfacing

    Love the plaid, I have some on my stash but I am concerned about lining up the pattern when cutting! It fits you really well.
