Description

Flounce Dress 12/2016 #107 pattern is best suited for drapey fabric. The pleats and flounces add a very nice detail. I didn’t want to sew a zipper so I simply left a 5" opening and added a pearl button and thread loop. It worked beautifully. The sleeves did not fit correctly so I created a flounce to match the front. It would also be okay to finish the arm holes without a sleeve.

Material Notes

I used Italian Rose Dust Stretch Polyester Crepe from www.moodfabrics.com.

    This dress looks technically very difficult to me but you’ve smashed it. A totally professional job!

      Thank you. It really wasn’t as difficult as it looks. The pleating took some patience and I also made a muslin first, which I don’t often do.
