I made this dress using the Salme Sonja pattern that you can download for free! It’s such a lovely pattern and sewed together perfectly, except that I didn’t realise that I needed to add seam allowances! I managed to hide that by adding an extra piece of fabric to the back and hiding the join with an exposed zip. I’m really happy with it, and think it’s a cute little party dress. I definitely plan on making another that’s perfect! It’s finally warm and sunny enough in London to take a few pics outside :)
