Vivat Veritas inspired dress

I LOVEEEE Vivat Veritas’ lovely garden dresses so much that I had to make one! I used the danielle pattern for the top and added rick rack to the bust seams (not really noticeable in my photos)…I had to take this pattern in ALOT to fit me.

    This is really lovely. I can’t resist a floral print and you’ve got the fit just right!

    I love your dress. Would love some advice on how you did the back. Would love to make one but the back looks very complicated!!

    Lovely summery dress! Well done! Think I will have to make a cut out dress! Saw one in New Look with a heart shaped cut out but it cost lots of money; making is so much better!! x

    Thanks for all the sweet comments :) For the back I used the Danielle dress pattern and played around with cutting out a shape I liked, mine ended up in two pieces. Id definitely advise mocking this up first so you get a nice fit and shape! Hope this helps x
