Despite the telling wrinkles at the end of the day, I love my March dress. Perhaps I should have taken it off and waited until it was fresh again, but it is 31 March and I have a deadline!
March is inspired by the sports luxe trend so prevalent this year. Sportswear doesn't just belong in the gym does it. I've taken it to the office using creme and black ponte from Tessuti in Sydney. The pattern is a remash of Burdastyle 12-2014-105 which I used for my David Jones top.
The changes to the pattern are simple.
Open the front seam to the upper front panel; insert a zipper; add a shoulder and back yoke; and add an additional panel to both the front and back sleeve seam. I drafted my own pencil skirt without darts using the waistband of the peplum as my starting point. If you are using a stretch fabric like ponte you don't need the underarm zip.
What's next? Not sure. I have a lot of fabric ideas for tops and coats, and one dress that is still taking shape.
