Description

Based on the Zoe pattern by Burda Style. I don’t know if the pattern was a bit wrong or if I’m too much of a newbie to get through it but this project made me frustrated more than once!
The skirt looked too low, it looked like I was between two sizes so I went one size up and I should went one size down. Anyway at first it looked really weird on me.

After a whole day trying to make it I had to put it aside and relax a bit. I made other alterations after thinking really hard how I could make this dress work and I think the result is successful!

Now I just hope this dress will last a long time!

Red and black moleskin.

    Great job I am glad you stuck with it. The skirt join is quite low on this dress, I also added vertical darts to bring it in under the bust. You look really good, well done :) xx
