Description

This is the full dirndl skirt version of the Kim Dress by ByHandLondon. I used a lovely red cotton eyelet fabric which I feel really worked for holding the gathers as it has a bit of stiffness to it . I got into all sorts of problems making this dress , Tbh I am pretty confused why the bodice didn’t fit me . I found the distance between the straps was far too wide so the straps were falling off all the time .I also didn’t like the fit round the waist . So I ended up re-drafting the bodice , bringing the straps further in and adding a wide waistband . I’m not used to drafting so the back of the dress ended up being all sorts of crazy, but I feel the overall fit of the bodice has much improved . If anyone has any advice about why I am having so many fit issues feel free to comment ! I am pretty big busted but fairly narrow from shoulder to shoulder , so not sure if I should be making a certain type of adjustment …
