Description

Here’s the Tower Midi!

Designed by me, hand-drafted and hand-sewn.

This one is actually more a size medium, but I tried it on to see how it looked on a person versus the dressform.

Making the sewing patterns went by pretty quickly as did making the dress. I estimate all together it was about 12 hours including pattern making. I used my torso block for this one which actually seems to be a bit bigger than my other pattern blocks. Not really sure why.

Also, the lace is tea-dyed. I had just enough for this dress and now the fabric store is sold out of this lace. It’s the same lace I used on the collar of the Judy Dress.

    very nice neckline and a good combination of colours, like the lace.
