The key to placing this print is when you layout the pattern. I was more than happy for the bulk of the blue to be across my waistline.
These patterns have my basic adjustments and the bulk of the print is across the waistline point. It was simply that easy to do.
There was no need to match poppies at the seams.
I kept the full border across the waistline.
The neckline was a high square neckline I drafted and instead of using facings, I fully lined this in dress with a white sunsilky fabric.
I clipped the sleeve seams to flatten the sleeves at the front of the dress.
- 4cm off the sleeve length and forward shoulder adjustment
- 7cm off the hem
- sway back adjustment
- 2cm off the bust point.
