I had this fabric in my stash for quite awhile and on my usual scavenger, pattern hunt through the net, I came across this pattern, and noticed it was the same fabric. The rest is history as they say!
I didn’t have enough fabric to make the collar but used some white denim but found it was too thick, ditch that collar idea! Not a collar kinda girl anyway..
The bodice was quite large I ended up making princess seems instead of darts.
The dress all in all was very easy to make,
Not doing to bad on taking photos with the self timer.

Material Notes

1/1/2 mtrs stretch cotton
45cm Invisible zip

    Absolutely brilliant idea! The dress is simply stunning and you have much talent to get this beautiful combination of fabric – pattern. I know that the fabric is the same in the picture of the dress, so it is an extra bonus for you. Great! It’s my favorite!
