Added Jan 14, 2013
This is the first dress I’ve ever sewn. I followed “The Twisted Bubble Dress with Belt” pattern. The only differences are that I added some length to the belt and I added the straps. I also didn’t have quite enough of the fashion fabric, so I couldn’t cut the back piece on the fold and I had to make it smaller.
I’ve added the instructions on how to make the straps I did.
The fashion fabric is a Silk Dupioni Novelty fabric and the lining is white cotton jersey.
