What materials did you use? Blue and white striped cotton

AskSarah on

What are you most proud of? I now have the perfect pattern for me in a style I just could find in a commercial pattern. I have adjusted the pattern as I went so I can make it anytime without fitting through the process too much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that your drafted pattern is symmetrical. Where there are darts or pleats, only completely undo one side until you can mark dart legs or pleat directions. As you unpick the dress, take note of the construction order, so you know the sewing order.

That's a beautiful sundress, very classy. I'd love to see a photo where you wear the dress. It looks like a very flattering pattern, I love the wide shoulderstraps and the beautiful neckline, and the waist piece.

Thank you! I wear it often. I shortened the straps and widened the waist band when I drafted the pattern from the previous dress.
