I think I'm falling a little bit in love with this pattern. This is the easiest fit on a bodice I've made so far what with no pesky boob darts to position. After getting my Ooh lala dress right I went gun ho on this one...
I scored this gorgeous flower print cotton from ebay....it was a duvet cover!
(Oh you can tell? Oh well I really don't care because....LOVE IT!)
I also bagged a plain white cotton sheet so this became my underlining (of course)
I went a size down on the bodice from last time as there was quite a bit of ease. I did intend on adding another gathered skirt too but what with all the lining it was too bulky to gather with running stitches so I made up my own pleats using the very technical way of matching the side seams and then eyeballing the middle and midway points and adding folds....
Shocking hell...it worked! I love how the pleats have turned out and the bodice is a perfect fit.
Did I mention how much I love this dress??
Even matched up the pattern on the back bodice. I used a cute lemon exposed zip just to test it out really and I quite like it........oh no that's right...I LOVE it... :)
