Added Jan 20, 2013
I followed the instructions for the pattern of “02/2011 Dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves #101” and based the bodice on this design.
I then added the skirt which was rectangle pieces gathered and stitched together, then attached the bodice.
I also added shoulder pads to the cap sleeves to add more structure, and lined the bodice.
I found this amazing printed fabric, and initially thought it was an “ikat” pattern then worked out it’s actually shark mouths LOL I love the pattern and colours.
