Completed Project: Floral Dress

  • Pattern drafted by me using directions from Cal Patch's Design It Yourself Clothes.
  • Slight sweetheart neckline
  • Gathered skirt attached to natural waistline
  • Bust darts at side seams
  • Lapped zipper on left side seam
  • French seams for seam finishing
  • Neckline finished with bias-tape facing (I partly guessed for this part, so I'm not entirely sure I did this correctly)
  •  Perhaps shorten bodice so waist occurs more closely to natural waistline
  • Adjust neckline shape
  • For redrafting another bodice front pattern, perhaps insert darts in waistline instead of side seams.
  • Different kind of facing for neckline
