I just couldn’t resist turning this cute curtain fabric that I picked up at a local op shop into this summery little number! Other than the easy-creasing factor, the material was great to work with, probably the easiest I have sewn with so far.
This is based on one of my initial inspiration to buy a sewing machine, a girly little dress with ruffles on the straps. The contour bodice is a reworked version of Miasu’s original design (here on Burdastyle, with a great tutorial), which i would recommend for the ‘more blessed(?)’ girls in that region.
I have added a pdf tutorial on how to make the custom pattern block, it is uploaded as a pattern file. Please note that this was configured to my measurements, and as I am not curvy in any manner, if you have larger proportions anywhere you will need definetely need to play around with the pattern to adjust it.
Please feel free to leave feedback! :)
UPDATE The instructions on how to put the pieces together are now up! Please upload your work if you make it, as I would love to see the results and how it worked on other people. I have not seen any responses, despite the number of downloads… I am not too sure if its because the instructions were too difficult, or if they didn’t work out well or the lack of instructions on how to put it together, but looking forward to some great projects that’ll hopefully come out of this! :D
