Gathered Dress – Burdastyle 06/2015 #120B

This pattern was a satisfying sew, and the fabric easy to stitch with. My mum gave me her sarong so I stitched this dinky dress out of it. I didn’t have to think too much while sewing it, and I’m happy with it, although I was short in the hem region by about 10cm less than the amount required. I think I redrew the hem at a more shallow curve than would be best, as with wearing this dress it can ride up the back lol. But as long as the back is pulled down and is straight across at the hem, I don’t mind the front gathers being pulled up, as it gives an interesting knotted appearance…
