I whipped this baby up in about 3 hours, pattern and everything! It was a really simple pattern to make: just a princess line with added flare at the bottom from waistline to hem. You get a semi-peplum-ish effect, but not as drastic.
This fabric is a vintage one-way stretch knit that I found on Etsy. I waited 3 weeks to buy this fabric! Why, I don’t know but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The seller confessed that she had a hard time parting with it since she loved it so much!
This pattern is self-drafted. I wore this to my exhibition of my fashion design work! See my blog at Manic Pop.
