Hi everyone!

I just finished working on this 60′s-reminiscent scallop yoke dress. I made all the patterns for it and this is my wearable muslin of it. It’s pretty close, but I want to make the side bust dart just a classic princess dart for added fit. This dress is not unlike a 60s dress by designer Andre Courreges.

Dress by Courreges.

 Some of my self-made patterns!


As always, you can see more of this dress/photos as well as my comments about the designing and sewing of this dress on my blog.
