This dress is a combination of the Pinafore Dress pattern, by Angela Kane, but with the Marie skirt front.
I used a white and pink cotton that for some strange reason reminds me of France…
Because I’m bigger from the waist down and thinner from the waist up, I thought it might look better with horizontal stripes on top and vertical ones on bottom.
I think I did quite well, I’m gonna wear it a lot.
I’m not sure if I should put some detail on the waist…
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
