Description

Wrapped bodice dress in shirt weight poly cotton cut on the cross to encourage a flattering drape. Small pleats at the raised waist give comfort and remove figure hugging. It is a pattern for tall people therefore took an extra 1.5cm off at shoulders and reduced the length of the skirt by about 7 cms for my 5’2" shortness. The front required a snap invisibly attached as the fabric was a little light to maintain its cross lines without a gape. Firmer fabric next time and would be happy to make another. Well designed pattern.

Material Notes

Shirt weight fabric a little light for the cross drape bodice.
