Description

Mostly self draft, eight yards of cotton/silk voile and some butterfly chiffon. My favorite dress ever!

For more on how I started with a commercial pattern (Burda 7697), graded it up, added shoulder pleats check out my first blog post

How I fine-tuned the fit, drafted the shaped elastic waist casing and draped the skirts, check out my second blog post

In my final post I show off a ton of photos, include drawings of how I made the skirts and include a mini-tutorial on making the boned dupioni belt.

    I love those colours… they remind me of India… Not that I’ve been, but it’s how I would envision it :)
