Description

This dress is based on the Cap Sleeve Dress Pattern. There is a zipper in the back. I used about 3.5 yards of fabric for the full skirt. I also used a petticoat underneath to add fullness for some of the photos. The dress can be worn with or without the corset.

This was a very simple pattern and I loved the results. I will make another dress soon!

    Looks like you did a great job fitting the dress, and the corset is a brilliant idea!

    I wouldn’t have thought of combining that dress with a corset, but it looks great! I also like the texture of the fabric you have picked.

    Very lovely. I like the way you alter the look with the corset! Nice job (and the fascinator is pretty too!)
