Inspiration - Carolina Herrera Rope Print Dress
This cap sleeve shift dress was my second winter break project. I made a muslin out of canvas fabric of similar weight with no problem, however, it looked horrible on me! It was a perfect example of what a petite woman like me (I am 5'2" (158cm) size 0) not to wear – shift dress made from stiff fabric. I gave up on the challenge of making the exact same dress and opted for an A-line dress.
Fabric: Cotton canvas from Sawyerbrook and Ambiance lining from fabric.com
Pattern: Again, the hybrid of McCall's 5466 (bodice) and Vogue 8555 (skirt). For this dress I cut the bodice front as one piece by omitting the center front seam.
I’m in love with this TNT pattern! I can see myself using it again and again in the future.
Until next time, cheers to you all!
