London, United K...
Fitted dress made with the Elisalex pattern by By Hand London. It has a princess seamed bodice and a pleated skirt. I followed the sew-along hosted by By Hand London and had a great time making it up! The fabric is cotton twill from Liberty on the outside and a soft moss green polycotton as the bodice lining.
This was my first time doing a dress with a separate bodice, first time doing princess seams and first box pleats – and I’m so happy with the results!
