Description

Tangy (as in tangerine) dress drawing. I saw a lace on sale (2.95/yd!) at the fabric store and I just had to have it. I didn’t know what I would do but I wanted to have it. So, I made a pattern all by myself! I didn’t buy it, nothing. I made every bit of this. It was fantastic. Its underlined with a black fabric (also on sale for $5/yd). Super fun!

    This looks lovely! No wonder you are so proud of yourself … you should be! I can’t imagine drawing a pattern & having it turn into something wearable! lol Love the colour on you too … very attractive. :)

      Its pretty easy. I’m not that experienced either. Look up draping videos on youtube. then you just transfer it to paper. You need a dress form. I can’t just take measurements and put it on paper yet.
