This dress started out as a sheath dress and I just didn't like it how it turned out. Since I had a little bit of fabric left over, I decided to transform it into a 1/2 circle dress. I found the fabric a few months ago at Joann's in the their Calico cotton section. It's a dark brown background with circles in various shades of blues.
I pretty much winged it and didn't use a pattern although I did draft my own for the skirt portion. For the top, I cut out the fabric in a "T" shape, added a couple of panels in the front bodice and added a zipper in the back. Adding darts in the front and back helped to make it more fitted.
For the first time since I started sewing, I made a full dress with very little mistakes and an incredible amount of patience that I have no idea where it came it from. It's still a little shorter than I like but I worked with what I had left and I absolutely love how this came out!
