The twist dress

I totally love this patern, even if I had to transform it a lot since it’s for shorter women (1m60, and my size is 1m70) and the largest size is 21 (I’m a 22).

Soooo, I draw a 22, then added 10cm (5 to the bust and 5 to the skirt), this way it fits nicely.

I made the neckline way more sexy, added a zip for the fun. Next time I’ll do the pattern V without changes: I like this one but I want the next to be different.

    Love your dress, the color looks great on you and the zip is so fun! I have often overlooked the petite patterns, even though the styles have appeal. It sounds like the alterations were easy enough, thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks a lot…

      It could be even easier since I thnik that next time i’ll do it without the bust changes : It fits exactly that way, but I think it could be nice to have the waist higher (am I clear ? I wish I was fluent in english!), this way it will give the impression that my legs are longer.
      So next time, i’ll just keep the 5cm modification in the skirt part.
