Oop, I keep making things and not posting them!
I made this a while ago for my cousin's wedding party back in May.
A wanted a nice summery floral number that wasn't too fancy, and could be worn to many other occasions.
I used the Basic Dress Sloper Pattern that I used again whilst making this dress, adapting the neckline and armholes.
I improvised a little bit with the skirt, making this shape x 6:
Which is quite easy to draw yourself using a large ruler onto a piece of newspaper.
I then attached the 6 skirt panels together and onto the bodice part of the dress and made a waistband from cream satin.
I hand stitched up the arm holes and the hem, and put a zip into the back!
Here is the finished dress :)
A little close up of the fabric. Its an old-ish looking floral pattern, with a teal/turquoise background, bought from my local saturday market for about £2.75/m!
It suited the occasion quite well. I hope I have an opportunity to wear it again before the winter comes!
