First self-drafted dress! A success!

September 11, 2014

I recently decided to stray from printed patterns and try my hand at drafting my own.  This is a pretty basic bodice style, but I’m pretty proud of how it turned out!  I used a stretch sateen to give the dress a little give and be super comfortable while dancing the night away! It has a full circle skirt with pleats of a leopard print sateen. The pockets and bodice are also lined with the leopard as well. Sorry I forgot to get better pictures before it got dark, but here are a few a took quickly before we left for a show.  (Modeled by the lovely friend who I made it for)
