Mash up magic dress

I told you I’d do it – mash up the bodice of V8766 & the skirt of M6503! It is everything I thought it would be – faultless simple four dart bodice and gently flared skirt.

I made it in a lovely Lisette cotton sateen fabric, bought from Spotlight (the Aussie equivalent to Jo-Ann in the US).

Construction wise it was pretty much the same as last time, except this time I “drafted” an all in one facing. When I say drafted, I really mean “cut a truncated version of the upper bodice”.

I also lowered the back by about 4″, mostly to make it easier for me to zip up, but also for a more summery feel.

Ummmm, not much else to say about this, so here’s a couple more photos:

  1. Absolutely beautiful! That fabric is so cute and just perfect for a sundress. It looks great on you! Also, why have I never thought to cut a truncated bodice as an all-in-one facing? That’s brilliant, Lizzie.
