I really LOVE it. That was the third time that I used this pattern. Am I crazy?
This fabric pattern's name is "Puff" designed by Liberty. This pattern is modeled after the shape and form of a cloud. But I think it looks like chrysanthemums.
I changed the conventional collar to the round one, and I also rounded the form of the cuffs. I think the rounded form matches the pattern of the fabric more than the normal design.
It can be worn without folded cuffs made by the rounded form. I like the style with split sleeves. I love the idea, because it's still too cold to wear clothes with short sleeves.
I used a soft interface on the cuffs of the previous dress. But this time, I used a harder and thicker interface. I think it's better than the previous work.
I made the ribbon belt with the leftover fabric. I combined two fabrics, so it was easy to make! I used printed fabric for the bodice, sleeve and skirt, and plain black fabric for other parts. Because of this, I didn't have to care about matching pattern. If you don't like doing tricky jobs, I recommend that you make dresses with simple patterned fabric or combine two fabrics. Because I didn't have to match the patterns, making the dress took only 10 hours (compared to 12 hours for the previous dress)
