If you add a skirt-part and shoulder-straps, it can look like this dress that I've made.

Hope you understood my explanations, otherwise just ask!

Good luck! :)

    Does this account for seam allowance? or did you cut out extra around the patterns to sew together?

      No, I added the seam allowance when i cut the fabric!

    I am confused, to assemble the bodice does each piece need to be cut out twice? Thanks :)

      Yes! If you look at picture 8:
      Piece one – 1x (you fold it in center front)
      Pieces 2,3,4 – 2x

      (or if you want to put the zipper in the side instead of the back, you fold in center back and just cut one)

      Hope I made myself clear ;) good luck!

    hi, thankyou so much for posting this! i’m really interested in starting to draft stuff, but have no clue at all about it. i’m just wondering, where do you get the measurements from for the adjustments? is it trial and error or is there a specific formula? and would these vary with different sizes?
