I designed and hand drafted this dress using my own measurements. The dress was made from a printed linen fabric. The fabric was pre-printed for a circle skirt, but I thought the pattern would make a unique dress. Each pattern piece was specifically placed on the patterned fabric. Because the print on the fabric is so detailed I wanted to keep the dress design simple, focusing primarily on placement of the pattern and the fit of the garment. The skirt is pleated with 2.5 inch pleats all the way round the skirt. There is an invisible zipper in the back with a placket of fabric covered buttons on top of it.
