Description

I used the free Sonja Dress pattern for this dress. It’s my first successfully made. It’s very much like the pattern I just added the belt. It’s made out of grey cotton with thin light grey stripes.

    I’m amazed how professional looking this dress is! It looks like its store bought. I’d love to be try this in future. I have downloaded the free pdf instructions, but there are only two pages, the 2nd page of which starts with ‘Stitch the bodice dart’. I’m a bit new to sewing. Are these all the instructions there are?

      Thank you! I agree, it’s going to be great for the summer, but I think also for winter or autumn, with some boots and cardigan over :) I recommend the pattern.

      Have a good day,
