DIY SIA DRESS USING A PDF PATTERN & MELANATED FABRICS
HI DARLINGS! I have been a pdf pattern kick lately and after seeing my friend make this pattern I knew I was going to make it too, it is such a great dress. The pattern is the SIA DRESS by MARSHA STYLE.
The dress is fantastic but I had to make some adjustments, I will say that she also has videos on her blog showing how to make fit adjustments to the bodice. My adjustments were more based on fit because there is quite a bit of ease in the pattern so I could have cut two sizes smaller than I normally would cut. I ended up stitching the CF together because the pattern is designed for a deep V but it wasn’t comfortable to wear because the bodice is loose-fitting a bit so it was just gaping open. I love it stitched up! I also cut a 10 on the bodice and a 12 at the skirt and instead of grading at the waist I just took a deep pleat than marked. Aside from those few adjustments, this is a total winner! I plan to make it again.
The FABRIC was a purchase from MELANATED FABRICS which we also have in three colors: CINNAMON, MINK & BLUESTONE
