I made a dress!

Then I liked it so much I made another one!  

I was sure I had downloaded a copy of " the essential denim dress" by " sew different"   but after checking the computer and every memory stick I had, no luck! So using screenshots, new look 6602 from the stash, a ruler, protractor, and some imagination, plus a good half a day at least, I came up with my own approximation.  

After making the first in blues and greens, I added some darts in the back, took some width from each front panel, and redrew the pattern a little. Then I made a 2nd version, still not quite finished but nearly there. Did you spot the pocket? Got to love a secret pocket!


  1. It looks great! I love the way the simple bodice leads down to the bright splashes of colour. Lovely!

  2. Thanks Katie! If you have a look over at the Sew Different website, there are some great colour/ pattern combinations for the "Assymetric A- line dress". I'm planning another in different shades of grey!
