Takes me like a little summer flower

Bourne, United K...






My dress of summer 2009.

I had this dress from scraps in the school cupboard spending £4 on a feature zip that I loved.

I altered a basic dress block pattern to my exact measurements in a mock up so it fit like a glove.

Material Notes

Top – Light grey single knit jersey
Bottom – Floral upholstery fabric (i think it was originally curtains)

Lining – used white polycotton for the back lining but ran out so used a lilac/white check polycotton for the front




Garment Type
Blends, Knits/Jersey

    Wow this is fab. What are the chances of you putting the pattern on the site? I’ve got some black and white striped fabric that would be great for this dress x

      i dont have a pattern for it, any basic dress pattern would do and just cut it on the empire line and then add seam allowance to that bit (i forgot that the first time so ran out of my lining) sorry :/ x
