Description

The Experimental Dress from a Craft Itch that needs to be scratched (blogged)

I am a still new to garment-making and learning from patterns as I go / went along.

It was part experiment, part overambitious undertaking, but mostly a learning piece.
My objectives for this project were:
1. make sleeves;
2. create a bodice + skirt bottom dress; and
3. use up these 2 pieces of quilting cotton.

Material Notes

lightweight cotton

      :)
      Thank you. I wanted a dress with sleeves, so I copied the top bodice from a vintage pattern.

    Wow! It doesn’t look like a beginner’s work to me! The print combo is really classy.
