Kyneton, Central...






I used a Vogue pattern for the top of this dress, then came up with the rest myself. The band on the bottom is the wrong side of the fabric, which i added for a little shape (if possible on this type of dress!) and contrast. Looks like a sack on the mannequin but great on!

Material Notes

Linen-like fabric with sheen.





Vogue v8380 for top, me for the rest.

    I really like that type of neckline. I think I may make a dress with a similar neckline in the future! too many project ideas, not enough time.

    oh wow, this is great, love it!! I’ve got this pattern too, and was going to do the same thing, but floor length & add a drop waist elastic casing.. Also I’ve used this very similar fabric to make a built by wendy dress, I get lots of comments on it. Great for evening wear on a basic pattern.
