Description

I have to wear “professional” clothes to uni this year, which displeases me greatly! I hate buying/making clothes I don’t like, so I’m trying to make a series of things that I would normally wear, but can style in such a way to make it more modest.

Please note the cool darts at the front and the gingham going in different directions.

      Thanks so much, Mary! I made my own pattern. it was actually really easy. You just get a normal pattern for a shift dress, cut it down the middle, keep the bust darts and move the the other darts to the locations in the pictures!
