Description

Self drafted dress pattern with multi-panelled bodice and simple a-line skirt. The bodice is inspired by a dress Daughter no2 saw on the Modcloth website about a year ago, now she finally has one similar! The fabric is a stretch cotton sateen John Kaldor print from Tatler’s fabrics in Derby. The bodice is lined witha white stretch cotton poplin. I have included a photo of all the bodice pieces before assembling, so you can see their individual shapes. For loads more, and the hold-up in getting this dress completed, see the blog

Material Notes

Stretch cotton sateen, lining stretch cotton poplin.

      If you can read a map, you can pattern cut! :D start with the skirt, then move onto bodices and dresses.
