Description

A classic summer dress – a fitted bodice with a full skirt that twirls nicely! This wasn’t very difficult to sew, although it was fiddly to get the bodice pieces sewn in neatly at the bust point. More details over at my blog: www.loweryourpresserfoot.blogspot.com

Material Notes

A border print cotton in bright mustard yellow and black graphic print.

    I didn’t expect this pattern to make such a great dress when sewn up in cotton, but I love it! Well done on matching the bodice parts!

    This dress is great too. You have done a great job with a piece of fabric that needed thought and skill to turn into this lovely dress.
