This dress combines three patterns by Violette Field Threads: The Pepper Dress, Alexandra Dress and Elodie dress. The hip length Alexandra bodice was shortened to the length of the Pepper bodice. The skirt was constructed using the specifications, measurements and instructions from the Pepper dress. The puffed sleeves are from the Elodie pattern.
The result is the beautiful hand tied collar from the Alexandra bodice, with a waist length Pepper bodice, full skirts and princess puffed sleeves.
The bodice of this dress was hand embroidered using the fairy tell templates from www.cutesycrafts.com as a general guide. The shape of the front bodice was drawn on the fabric to begin. The hand embroidery pattern was then embroidered on this outline ensuring that it was centered. After the hand embroidery was complete, the bodice was cut out.
