I picked up a book on drafting a while back and and finally got to try it out with an old design I had sketched up last year. I did a muslin first to test it and made my adjustments, and ended up with this. It's exactly how I wanted it to be and I'm so excited about it!

There's no zippers, it pulls over and cinches around the waist with the ties. Such comfort!











Thanks for looking Smiley

This is super cute. And I love that it just pulls over, no zippers to be bothered with!

That's gorgeous.  It makes me wish I had the space to pull out my stuff again.

It looks cozy and I like the fact you made it into a pullover instead of a zip up the back.

that's really nice, is it a knit or woven fabric?

I like very much the style of this dress, especially the collar and the belt, and the fabric you used is perfect for it Smiley Love it Smiley
