princess seam bodice with gathered flared skirt

Added Aug 25, 2013

Shah Alam, Malaysia






this is a really simple silhoutte. princess seam bodice with gathered flared skirt. the print is love at first sight and i was so lucky i had the LAST 4metres. its really hard to find prints like this. i dare say that 70% of the fabrics sold here are flower prints and the rest are abstracts. i added some details like welt pockets and in-seam pockets(yay to pockets!) and also exposed zipper teeth on the sleeves.

i used bunka textbooks to draft the pattern for the dress. the fit is spot on! i could totally sleep in this dress. its that comfy.

sorry for the gloomy looking pictures tho. i went out too early thinking the sun is up already heh.

Material Notes

4metres 60" wide cotton fabric, metal zipper teeth, invisible zipper

    Everything is nice – the print, the pattern and your job is very neat.

      thank you! I initially wanted to try out invisible pocket from pattern magic book but scared that it’ll look messy coz of the prints heh.
