|A simple dress with a figure-skimming, yet relaxed, fit.|
I used Advance 6643, the same pattern I made the Sailor Dress from last year, but this time I left the Florentine collar off. I made some notes on the pattern, to drop the waist and shoulders 1/8" on all seam allowances, to accommodate my long waist, so I made these changes this time too.
|The fabric was a gift from Vintage Dancer. It's bold, and I love it.|
What I like best about this pattern is that it is very basic, almost a sloper. I can use this pattern to design all sorts of other dresses from, with various necklines and sleeves. I already have a seed on an idea for a Game-of-Thrones-1950s-Style dress, built on this same basic dress pattern....but that's for another post. :-)
