Before I went on vacation I mentioned a couple of dresses and promised each of them its own post.
The first is made using the bodice pattern I altered to make my BurdaStyle competition dress. The only changes I made were to place the zipper in the back and differ from some of my straight grain marks in order to get the print unidirectional. I then added a simple box pleated skirt to this bodice and chose a wide hem for the skirt. I wanted to add pockets, but didn’t get around to do it before we left. Maybe I’ll add front pockets later sometime.
I love this bodice, and the print works well on this I think. The thing I would change if I make this again is the center front seam, which suffers from stress – I think it would be better to simply cut the fabric on the fold for this piece.
