Contour Bust Variation take 2

Wonderland, Unit...






After the pencil skirt version comes the swing version! I’m getting addicted to this pattern! As in my first variation I added a waistband to the bodice, only this time it’s slightly smaller (3" instead of 3.5"), to meet the skirt at my natural waistline. I used the rest of the dress fabric for the skirt which has unpressed box pleats and reaches down to the knees. The full skirt means it can be worn with a petticoat for a fuller and dressier look (as in the last picture). The dress closes at the back with a zipper and hook and eye and the shoulder straps are made from doubled up bias binding like in the first variation.

Material Notes

1.5 m cotton (black with little red roses) – strip of black cotton for waistband – bias binding – zipper and hook and eye fastening
