Have you seen The Fold Line's pattern design competition? Well, I thought I'd give it a go as I like to monkey around with a bit of pattern drafting, so I entered the design for my last make, and it's only gone and made it to the short list!! I was beyond excited when I got the email yesterday!
My design is for a 1970s style dress with a princess seam bodice with buttons to the waist. If it wins, there will be two sleeve options: one that finishes below the elbow with an elastic cuff, and one with a big 70s button cuff with a keyhole placket.
The skirt is an A-line skirt, and the dress has a side zip. Here is my version below with the shorter sleeves. The bodice on this isn't a princess seam. I used viscose for mine, but any drapey fabric would be lovely. Viscose, Rayon, Polyester, Lightweight Crepe, Cotton Lawn or Silk - if you're feeling fancy!
So I'm going to be very forward and ask you to take a minute to vote for me on The Fold Line website, my design is number three. Click here for the link.
Thank you in advance,
