This dress is inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's story "The Secret Garden" and the happy, innocent childhood enjoyed by the characters. As the story is about change, this dress quickly changes from a day-dress to a party-dress when you arrive at the Secret Garden Tea Party, by the addition of a layered organza skirt.
The pattern instructions show you how to improve sewing patterns and draft a button-fly placket while the sewing instructions show you how to line a sleeveless garment completely by machine for a professional finish. The pattern does not include seam allowances. This allows you to better practice the pattern cutting techniques taught in the instructions and get a better result in your dressmaking with other patterns you use.
This design was created as part of my university project as I study to get my degree in Fashion Design, and build my indie pattern company. I hope you enjoy it!
