Description

A little white dress instead of an LBD! I did a full bust adjustment by treating the panel seams as the slashes/darts – not super precise but worked fine in this case, since it’s not a terribly fitted bodice. The fabric is a supple, smooth, and very stretchy knit with some subtle texture. I’m guessing it’s a rayon blend, although I’m not sure; I bought it months ago in Vancouver. I added a side seam zipper, although the fabric turns out to be stretchy enough that I don’t actually need it. I also self-lined the whole thing, which makes it pretty opaque and gives it a nice quality feel.

    This is a great pattern as it can be altered quite neatly and the skirt section can be paired with other top halves. Great work!
