no pattern was used, i just pieced this together until i had a dress.

    I look forward to the day when I can make a well fitted dress from scraps. It’s lovely!

      thankyou! it was a lot of trial and error fitting wise. and the back of the dress had me up in arms, i saved that pic of shame for the blog!

    Nice dress! I still have quite a bit of Burdastyle-book-fabric left over as well… it’s just waiting for the right project. By the way, the link to your blog doesn’t work.
