Description

A day off from work and didn’t want the day to waste so I design this style. I use up my leftover fabric to create the look. I cut the design free handed base on my measurements. It is a sleeveless dress with round neckline and a slight V at the back with three bows in the center. The skirt is slightly gathered at the waist with a bubble effect at the hemline. I use elastic at the hem to create it. A zip is at the side

With a few tweaks here and there I am so happy with the outcome :-)

The green edges you see at the back is the bias binding on the seams.

What do u think???

      Thanks Chula! I constantly think about trying different things and how they would look when I bring them to reality. Really appreciate that you love my creations. Good motivation for me to continue :-)

      Thanks Mary :-) for you lovely comment. I really want to be good at pattern drafting but I am nowhere there yet. It takes a lot of practice which I am now doing in my spare time. So planning on buying a book to work with
