Description

The picture is horribly stretched out.

I found a pattern I loved in a McCall’s pattern book at Joanns. I bought some cotton fabric in down town L.A. The bottom of the skirt came with the detail, that part wasn’t me.
After I made the dress I took a walk around the mall, and found the exact same dress in Anthropology. Same pleating in the bodice and everything.
This dress has a zipper up the left side with boning in the front and back. I left the bottom unhemmed because I can’t hem to save my life.
The only problem with the pattern I used is that the measurements for chest/cup sizes are abnormal. I made the pattern according to what my size usually is, and it came out about 2 1/2 sizes too big. When I checked the measurements on the pattern they are different than normal, so if you find this pattern and use it, be sure to double check the measurements.
