Ribbon dress (without the ribbon)

Added Aug 24, 2013

Nergens, Netherl...






Trying out the Ribbon Dress, but without the ribbons. Slightly longer sleeves, slightly longer length. A more modest neckline, because it looked like the original was going to show my bra straps.

I made it in a 40, but the bodice was really too loose. So I moved the zipper to the side and took the upper back seam in a few centimeters. I also added a back tie, as much to hang my work pass on as to adjust the size.

The neckline gaps a little, but I think both the dress and the pattern are keepers. I just need to figure out how to adjust the sizing to make the bodice and skirt work together first time!

Material Notes

Quilting cotton, Sara Morgan for Blue Hill fabric

    A pretty universal pattern: your variant gives many suggestions for combining with other clothers both because of your modifications and the colourstyle.
