Sewing: Tartan Dress (updated)

Made from scratch except for collar and zipper.



 Pattern:





Simplicity 1419 Lisette.

I used different sized pieces for the top and bottom half as I am not all one pattern size. I used a premade collar instead of the pattern piece, but I plan to use the collar pattern for a future dress. I also changed it to back zipper and took out the cut out at the front. It is slightly longer on me because I am short but this is a good length for me!

    1. Lol no I mean I sewed them in but I didn't make them. I guess it was pretty obvious I didn't make the zipper!
