I used my dress block to make this pattern. I’m pleased with the result even though the waist needed nipping in a bit more. It looks so sweet with a big petticoat too :)
Ignore the awful photos!

      I made the pattern myself from a dress block I made to my measurements. The bow is Just a loop of fabric, with a smaller loop wrapped around the center :)
