Description

This dress reminds me of the curtain dresses from the sound of music – I think it’s the little sleeves and the fabric pattern. I may well have to go skipping and singing through Cardiff, although I’m not sure it has the same romantic atmosphere!

I did pintucks on the bodice, but should have used a plainer fabric as you can’t really see them. I made the pintucks in a separate panel for the bodice. Lined the bodice. The skirt is a bit see-through, but I didn’t want to add too much fullness so I just wear a slip under it.

Self drafted bodice and sleeves – I like the fullness of the sleeves, but unless they’ve just been ironed they do puff out a bit too much. Wide waistband and gathered rectangle skirt.
