Sharkteeth's Wraparound Dress


This was the dress I made for Sharkteeth's second culmination activity last Thursday. The very first "real" dress I ever sewed using my new sewing machine.


It's an eyelet wraparound dress with puffed sleeves and shirred skirt tied with a bow at the left side of the waist. I used the senepa(?) edge of the fabric for the bottom of the skirt and the neckline of the dress. All are lined except the sleeves, and a petticoat was attached to the skirt to give it a bit of puff. I wish I can give you a tutorial on how to make a wraparound dress, but I don't have a pattern of any sort – I just cut and adjusted the cut pieces. It was manageable without the pattern because Sharkteeth is so very easy to deal with when it comes to fitting dresses. Otherwise, I think I would need to make a duct-tape dress form for the dress to fit well.
