Hi,

Well I sort of suck at sewing but I've fallen in love with this dress but have no idea how to make it.

This is the dress:
http://www.lipsy.co.uk/store/religion/religion-layered-grecian-drape-dress/product-is-DR05270_091

I love the grecian style but I would change the colour and the fitting around the bust as that would swamp me and make me look even smaller than I already am! Any help would be amazing especially if it was nice and simple for special me!!!! Grin

Thanks

I am a self-taught sewer, but I will try my best to help out. It looks like it will be easier to make a separate top and bottom, because I don't understand how to do that all in one piece.The bottom just looks like a wrap skirt with gathering at center back. The front looks like it was made to be too high-waisted so it rumpled down (on purpose). The edges either have some translucent ribbon sewed on or that's selvage.



I don't know how you want to change the top, but you could probably do something simple and fitted to get rid of the draping. There are a ton of free patterns online. I hope this was helpful to you!
