Description

A Line dress, with contrast panels cut on a curved seam. I’ve been wanting to make this dress for a while and finally got the chance to make it to wear at a friends wedding a couple of weeks ago.

I was inspired by the curved panel on the dress in the burdastyle magazine a couple of months ago, but wanted something a little more unique and more fitted. you can find out more on my blog http://ragbagsandgladrags.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/dress-factor-elizabeth-dress.html
