A Draped Shift Take 1

I was inspired by a pattern puzzle on the Studiofaro facebook page and have made a draped shift dress following the instructions on the studiofaro website. http://studiofaro-wellsuited.blogspot.com.au/2013/12/pattern-puzzle-drape-shift.html.

The instructions on the website led me to creating this pattern. I decided to sew it in a stretch jersey with a plan for a wearable muslin as the finished garment.closeup of drape dress notes patternThese are some of the of the notes made on the pattern .

I didn’t get the result that I hoped for but was very happy with what I got. This is a very comfortable garment, and I love wearing it.

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂
