I have sewn a couple of other versions of this pattern, my nana gave me this lovely piece of fabric from her stash a while back, several meters – enough for two projects, maybe a blouse next…. The fabric is so soft and has a good drape, just lovely! I lined the bodice to give a bit more structure, leaving the skirt unlined, it has a great floating quality to it.
Here’s the original pattern, I went for version two with the slightly square back neckline. And here’s the finished dress!
And the back….
And the bodice, great belt huh? An op shop find.
Love this neckline.
For now, this baby is going into hibernation, as it’s getting chilly here. Onto some winter sewing projects!
The dress is beautiful! The fabric does look like it has a nice drape to it and would make a great blouse. I hope you’re able to stretch the wear of this with a cardigan while the season shifts. It’s really pretty. 😀
This is a stunning dress, and I love the fabric. I met you briefly at the CTANZ 2015 Symposium and thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on Hydra and Coraline.
Thank you for your comment, wasn’t it a wonderful weekend? So much to take in and think about.
