Sorry, I'm not sure I'll be a lot of help, but I'll try nonetheless.
You'd think it would be an easy thing to find but sadly I have had difficulty finding this style myself, so you have 2 opinions (beyond checking every pattern in the catalogues). The first is to take one of the bias cut skirt patterns and simply rotate it so that it is cut along the grain. This will give the skirt a different look and drape. I have a few patterns that allow for the skirt to be cut either on the bias or on the grain so I would assume it can be done with any skirt. Your other option (which I am currently doing right now) is to find a skirt pattern you like the shape of, and a top pattern you like and attach them in the middle to make a dress. This option is only good if you are comfortable screwing around with patterns but you can either have a waist seam to attach them, or you can attach the pieces before cutting out the fabric eliminating the need for a waist seam all together.
Hi everyone, I'm trying very hard to make a properly made dress for once (you know fitting it first, hand sewing, and all that) and I'm wondering which side a side zipper is supposed to be on. I know there is a proper side I'm just not confident I know which side it is, and I really don't want to be ripping out a zipper if I find out I did it wrong.
All the galleries look great. I will be posting a few pictures of gina shortly, we took her to my parents' place for the weekend and got a few pics. Sadly the weather did not cooperate so picture options were limited, but we did get to do a few.
