I had tons of fun making this dress! I was really happy I made a muslin first so I could smooth out anything sitting funny and figure out how to sew the wavy seam on the front. I used the instructions from the book Pattern Magic vol. 1 to draft the pattern. I really love how it turned out and now I just need somewhere fancy to wear it! If I were to make it again I would make it out of something a little more stiff to create a more defined wavy shape.
