Pattern


Three patterns were mashed up to create this beautiful dress! The base of the bodice was created by using the Pepper Dress Pattern by Violette Fields. The mandarin collar piece and cross over bodice was created based on the Girls Cheongsam Pattern by Porcupine Patterns. Finally the skirt was changed to a circle skirt from a gathered skirt using the Catherine Pattern by Violette Field Threads.


Pattern pieces were adjusted prior to cutting the fabric to ensure they would work together, especially matching the width of the Pepper bodice and Catherine circle skirt.


Fabric


This China Doll Fabric is by Michael Miller and is out of print. It is difficult to find but not impossible with searching and patience!
