I don’t care, I’m making a summer dress. It was this same time last year that I had an uncontrollable itch to make a summer dress. And, I am. And, it’s the same dress!
I’m going to use these Anna Maria Horner prints from fabricworm. I’ve already altered the bodice pattern from the original to give me some more coverage up top. When I wore it in Panama, my mom asked me where the rest of the dress was. Funny one that mom of mine.
I would be working on my Weekender, but my zipper hasn’t shown up yet. I’m going to call on Monday since I ordered it about two weeks ago.
A couple of you asked why you would move a dart. Since the sloper is used to create a pattern, you might want a side bust dart like you see in blouses. As for the neck dart, I imagine that one was in this dress:
But, instead of sewing it closed, it was folded over to create the neck pleats.
