Sewing Level: Advanced
This dress is an advanced project because the pattern pieces feature asymmetrical folds, layers and pleats that are difficult to assemble and secure invisibly. In addition the dress requires underlining and a multilayer inner foundation. Additional features are a padded hem, two separate zippers, a waist stay/belt, and multiple linings.
I chose a fun fabric from my stash: metallic rayon brocade in a leopard print. A complete supply list is included in the Marfy 2845 Summer 2012 Tutorial in the upper right corner of the Home page.
