I got inspiration for this dress from a dress I saw on ModCloth, but didn’t realize how annoying it would be to make. It was a pain to get right and when i started i was thinking of making two, not anymore! I modified simplicity pattern 4070 and made the skirt part out of a rectangle. The bodice took so long to get right and I’m still not completely happy with how it turned out. The waistband on the dress wasn’t tight enough so i ended up making a belt for it out of a rectangle, some buttons and piping.
Cotton Voile for main dress, Cotton poplin for lining, cotton drill for belt, buttons, zipper and piping
