a pdf design by Designer Stitch
When I saw the Beth dress was up for testing, I knew I had to test and what print I would sew this dress in. I was going for a country style with the prints I picked.The Beth dress comes in different versions and lengths for the sleeves and the hem length. Shown here is the elbow sleeve length, with the midi length. I love the shirring on the sleeves, and the side skirt split.
Both my dresses are made from cotton fabric. Because I have a bad right hand, I did use a right side zipper instalment, making it easier for me to zip the dress up and down.
Tip: do take current measurements and follow the instructions on your correct size, you might need to grade down or up on the pattern. Sew up a muslin first using the same type of fabric listed in instructions. By making a muslin, you are able to adjust for correct fit. It took me a couple of tries ripping out my muslin before I was happy with the fit.
