I've had a number of requests for patterns for sale or tuts, so here it is. I'm afraid I only have one copy of this pattern - the one I made to fit my 5'11", size 4 frame. Now, this pattern won't work for every body, obviously, and I like to keep my patterns to re-use or alter later on. So INSTEAD, I did you lovelies one better: I sat down and sketched (albeit poorly), scanned, and photoshopped you a tutorial so you can make one for yourself. I highly recommend having an adjustable dressmaker's dummy to work with when drafting this pattern - or get a good friend to sketch while you hold up trace or other lightweight paper on your body.

One little note that I didn't include: After I'd finished sewing the thing together, I did sew a green ribbon with a black border around the seam between bodice and skirt seam. I stitched in black (to match the border) and went over and over the thing to reinforce both the seam and that poor delicate ribbon.

If you use this tut, would you please send me a PM or a link to your final image so I can see how you interpreted it? I'd love to see what you do with it. Also, don't be afraid, this has a lot of steps, and a lot of pressing, but really isn't that hard at all.



good luck!

Ohmystars! That's absolutely adorable, and I especially love the embroidery. It looks so...spring-y.

Thanks much for the tute!

That is SO pretty, and the embroidery is amazing!! I would love to make something a dress like yours, but for me hand-embroidery takes ages. Your dress looks like something out of like an anthropologie summer catalog.

aw, thanks! it takes me a long time, too, which is why I either have to start WAY in advance, or I always finish a project too late in the year to wear it. =)
