|Notes||I wanted to use a beautiful butterfly design and chose this style as the straight panels of the skirt could be combined into a single front section. I have done this by creating a horizontal seam in the side front, at the level of the belt, with the princess seam above it.
My fabric is black stretch denim.
I have added photographs of work in progress …. watch this space!
Finished - I am very pleased with the finished result. This works alone, as a sleeveless dress, or with a top underneath for cooler weather. The square neckline is nicely framed by the facings and the whole garment is a lovely shape. I did need to do some fitting adjustments to the bodice section and lengthen the skirt a bit, but still think this is a great pattern. I removed the side straps, my denim fabric made these rather bulky - and this allows me to add different belts if I choose.
Very pleased with the embroidery :)
