I made this dress to wear to my cousin’s wedding this summer. I made the pattern to my own measurements based on the dress block from Winifred Aldrich’s “Metric Pattern Cutting for Womenswear”. The skirt has a slight A-line. The bib (geometric petals around a central circle) was inspired by an old patchwork pillow my parents have.
purple cotton poplin, which was easy to work with but creases easily, so not the best fabric for a dress!
