This is the same self-drafted pattern that I used for this dress. This is my first project that required we to match horizontal lines so I’m glad I had this tried-and-true pattern to work with.
Much of the construction techniques I used are from Classic Tailoring Techniques: A Construction Guide for Women’s Wear.
I’f you’re interested in how the pattern was drafted, I posted all about it here. Come and say “hello!”
