Bedford, United ...
I had been putting off making a dress block to my specific measurements as I thought it would be difficult, but it turns out it’s not so hard :)
I used the block to make a pattern for this dress, and I had JUST enough fabric (from a charity shop, £3) to make it. As you can see in the second picture.
There is an inverted pleat at the back for ease.
Please ignore the terrible photography and the crease down the skirt!
