I followed the pattern Model 117 from Burda Style Magazine.

Working with a knit jersey material was a little tricky! If I make another one these, though, I think it’ll go a lot smoother and quicker :).

    Wow, what an amazing fit. You look stunning in it. Is it gathered on the side seams? Looks great!

      thank you! yes, it’s gathered on the side seams…i want to make it again, and play around with the gathers a little more (as far as placement/concentration), whatever will make it more flattering on the body… in any case, it was a fun dress to make :).

      thank you so much! i definitely want to try making this again, i think of it like a batch of cookies, the first batch is always a tester batch & you figure out what you should & shouldn’t do for the next one :).
