I made this dress to wear to afternoon tea on my birthday at a posh hotel downtown. It’s actually the first mock-up of a dress I’m wearing to a wedding, so it’s not perfect.
Sorry about the blurry pictures, I may upload some better ones at a later date.
2.5 yards woven houndstooth fabric, 1 black 1" zipper, fusing optional
Drafted the bodice by heavily modifying the “Coffee Date Dress” (lower neckline, change to princess seam, etc.) bodice and a following a basic dirndl skirt pattern.
