What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've decided not to publish this pattern. While I love designing for others, I?d like to keep this as my own. If you like this dress you will also like Bryn Mawr, a dress I designed for Interweave Knits Fall 2013. It?s a heavily cabled dress that transitions from an A-line skirt to a fitted bodice.
