An easy dress pattern, but test the sizing first!
on 29 July 2014
I made this dress for a wedding! Having measured and cut the pattern to the sizing on the packet, I found the bodice was too big and I wish I had cut a smaller size. I took the bodice in at all the seams however the shoulder straps were a little to far apart. Instead of cutting the facings I cut the whole dress out in lining (poly-cotton) and lined the whole dress, which made it very comfortable to wear. I also used an invisible zip and added my own belt. An easy pattern, but I recommend testing the size with some scrap or lining fabric first. I cut the sweetheart neckline and the v back, and made it in a 3% stretch cotton.
