Being the big fan of fitted dresses and oversized sleeves that I am, I figured why not incorporate the two. I’m typically drawn to solid color fitted dresses but I remembered this gorgeous fabric I picked up from moodfabrics.com a couple months ago that unfortunately sold out. Here and here are a couple fantastic alternatives that would look just as awesome.
The pattern used for this dress was:
Bodice McCalls 5927 view B with the following alterations:
-Added 1.5″ to the height of the neck
-Faced the bodice
-Added a 11h”x 18w” attached exaggerated sleeve. (lined the sleeve with a heavier medium weight twill to give it structure)
Skirt used was this self drafted pencil skirt.
