It’s no secret I really like this pattern and now that I have made all the necessary fit adjustments to the pattern it makes a super quick project.
This time I used a gorgeous floral border print from the Alannah Hill clearance store in Melbourne. The fabric is some kind of dress weight fabric, I suspect polyester as it has no stretch at all and doesn’t crease. Great for sitting for prolonged times! I lined it in a cotton voile for added comfort.
Not much to say about the construction as I covered my adjustments in my previous Elisalex posts 1, 2 & 3. This time with the skirt, instead of the pegged in version of the pattern, I instead continued the line from the hip to the hemline to give more of a bell shape. I wanted to do this to highlight the border print.
No gaping at the back this time and I didn’t change anything. Again I kept with the invisible zip in the back.
These photos were taken on the way out to a work function, it’s a great little afternoon party/bbq dress.
With four versions already, I feel like I am starting to mimic Roisin, have you seen all her amazing versions??? Still when you get onto a winner of a pattern, why mess with a good thing?!
