Description

this is the first item of clothing i’ve made where i have made the pattern myself. This dress was going to have a halter neck top with a straight piece across the chest and a piece of elastic down the front to create a gather between the breast. When I made it it made me look very flat chested and wasn’t the right style for my shape, so I went back to the drawing board and came up with this. The breast pieces are not quite right but for a first attempt I’m pleased with it. The fabric again was see through so I cut up an old bed and used it as lining. The skirt is a half circle skirt, there are no fastenings it ties around the neck and around the chest.

Material Notes

light weight printed cotton and an old white bed sheet for lining

Novice
