Green Brocade Sweetheart Dress

Added Jul 2, 2013

Macau, Macao






I am in love with the dress pattern since the first day I received the magazine that my sister in law brought it from Portugal. I used 2 yards of green brocade fabric from my stash.
I chose size 34 for the bodice dress and size 38 for the skirt. I drew a new pattern for the bodice because the minimum size from the original pattern is 36. Then I have to adjust the bodice to the skirt pattern ( I had a vary size between the body and the skirt)
Please head over my blog for more details, pictures and muslin. http://velvetribbonsew.blogspot.com/2013/07/sweetheart-dress-042013.html

    Love your dress! I have the same issue with the bodice too, as I’m a pear shape. Thanks for the tips!
