Description

I made this using the Zoe pattern, but I amended the skirt to be a simple pencil skirt-ish shape as it seemed to go better with the printed fabric. I also added some extra darts on the front if that dress taught me anything, it’s how to sew darts!).
For contrast, I used black bias tape for the trims – also makes it feel a bit more stable as the fabric is very light.

I had a bit of fabric left over so I made matching wrist warmers…

    Thanks! That fabric was a rest from the bargain bin in my local fabric shop. Lucky find :-)
