Description

This is the original version of my striped dress, before I realized how rad it would look in stripes, and before I modified the upper bodice.

I originally draped it on my dress form in muslin, folding and manipulating it until it laid smoothly, then made a flat pattern before sewing it up into this slinky little red number.

The whole pattern is one uninterrupted piece … the only seam is in the center back. The rest is shaped by darts! The flat pattern for this is totally cuckoo looking. I’ll try to get at least an image posted for you to see!

Material Notes

Rayon crepe-back satin in red

    I’d love to see what the flat pattern looks like (even just on a picture, I realise this dress must have been made for one’s specific shape)! The shape is great and I love the lines of all the bodice darts. I’ve been pattern making for a while, but I’d love to learn the fine art of draping, and creations like this one make me want that even more.
