Description

The Little Floral Dress (as to LBD) is definitely one of my favourite dresses so far. It’s floral, has a peter-pan collar and looks quite vintage!

I can’t remember when I began on this dress, probably sometime last year, and left it in the to-be-completed basket as I ran out of fabric for the interfacing at the neckline. It was also sold out in the local store. I refuse to use a plain but matching fabric so it was chucked aside till I thought of something brillant. Major booboo! A few days back, I recalled the contrasting hidden piping which I did for my B.A.T dress and viola!, I am quite mightily pleased with how it turns out!

    Did you use a pattern for this?

      Not a ready pattern because I drafted it out myself.

      I use my bodice block, extended 4cm from the hip and drew a straight line from the bottom of arm hole to the 4cm point and to the hem.
