Fitted Dress Block Tag

This kimono styled dress was quite a challenge in the pattern making department. Firstly you have to decide if the wrap over is an authentic two-layer wrap or if you are going to seam the pieces together. I've gone for the two layer option and included a zip in the CB seam as the only place where the two bodice layers join.

A very clever bunch of #PatternPuzzlers were able to nail all the detail in this complex design on Saturday.  The most baffling part of the pattern shape are the very deep tucks in the left shoulder.  This draped style mixes straight and bias grains with tucks and gathering and an invisible zip in the left side seam.
