This dress is developed from an old pleated skirt that I bought from an op shop near my home some time ago. I never wore the skirt and decided to turn it into something else. Lancey dress pattern seemed to be a perfect fit, mainly because of the pleated skirt bit, that I already had. I only needed to find the right bodice fabric – the right colour that would match with the skirt. It took me a long time to find one. There was nothing similar in the local fabric stores. So I took the skirt with me when I went overseas for christmas. I did manage to find a very close match there and was able to finish the dress finally. I am pretty happy with the outcome and recommend Lancey pattern to anyone.
Ployester and a zipper (small one on the side).
