Finally here to post something new I designed!
Ok, if it looks familiar at all, it's because it's a sort of a knockoff of this dress by Chloe from 2013.
When I first tried it on, it was SUPER tight. I couldn't imagine why since I had made it fit my dressform and then it dawned on me - I forgot to include wearing ease on the pattern. Grr. So I ended up letting it out 1/4" on almost every seam, making the waist increase by 1 1/2".
I also fought with the invisible zip for some reason even though I have done many. This dress was full of ridiculousness, but all-in-all, I think it turned out really well, even if the blue fabric crinkles like none other!
I think it worked out well!
I'm actually enjoying doing some knock-off patterns right now. I have a few more that I might do, but not sure. I have a huge queue of garments lined up, it's really just about figuring out which ones and making them!
