A self drafted dress pattern, using the “Dress with draped design” adaptation from Pattern Magic. I had high hopes for this one. The fabric is a georgette I was sent by a friend in the States. Playing with the paper to make the pattern went ok, making the dress with all its French seams was fine. Wearing it is different. This fabric is not exactly suited to the style, it’s just too slippery/drapey. I am not sure whether I like it enough to actually wear in public, but as it is now a finished project, I might as well complete the process. There is more info if you need it on the blog.
