This my variation of the Katjusha. I used my bodice block and drafted princess seams from it. Very fun! The back is shirred much like the Katjusha. I had a lot of fun making this, but wish I had bought enough fabric to make a circle skirt. I would have liked a fuller skirt, but I didn’t want to add a lot of gathers at my midsection.
Dropped the waist just slightly because I have such a short torso and large bust, I feel like dresses that stop at my waist make me look so stocky.
