A Colorful Elisalex Dress

Added Aug 19, 2013

Brooklyn, New Yo...






Elisalex dress pattern by By Hand London. I made the bodice with no modifications but added a gathered skirt in place of the tulip skirt that was part of the original pattern. The bodice is fully lined, including the sleeves.

      I’m sure you’ll like it. It’s a really easy pattern to work with, and you can put just about any skirt on it. Can’t wait to see it when it’s done!

      It’s a much better silhouette on me. Not sure I could have pulled off the tulip skirt. Thanks!
