I finally took pictures of this dress that I finished a month ago!
I wanted to make a dress with a tied back and a sweetheart neckline for summer, so I drafted a pattern. I also tried a scalloped edge for the first time 🙂
This was my inspiration for the shape of the top of the dress:
It isn’t perfect, but after I finally wore it for the first time last weekend, I loved it!
This is the first “complicated” dress I’ve ever drafted, and I’m quite happy with it. Although next time I don’t think I’ll make a scalloped edge with the 2/3 circle skirt, they just don’t show that well… and that it’s hard to tie the back nicely without help! Also, the skirt is a tiny bit too small, and it makes the zipper look weird. Maybe a hook and eye can fix that.
To see all posts on this design (drafting etc.), take a look at my blog. (EDIT: fixed the link, sorry, it should work now! :))
