Quite a challenge in the latest Pattern Puzzle from our Saturday morning conversations on facebook. This is the original puzzle and the sketch and pattern plan are pasted below. Alison & Vivienne once again solved the puzzle with flying colours. Great work!
The dress is sketched up in three blocked colours of Navy, Red and Yellow.The original idea was scanned out of my Visual Diary (below) and turned into a production sketch ready for pattern making. Working through your production sketch will make you finalise all details including how you might get into the dress. ;)
I've based this pattern development on my fitted dress block available here (Womens Fitted Block Sizes 6-16) for you to download. :) In the pattern plan I have decided that the red diagonal panel with the drape should be in one piece (no side seam) so the tucks can be secured softy at the side seam, as in the sketch.
This is how the fabric (pattern) pieces would look cut out in the three different colours.
