For this time of year (Summer in QLD) a party dress has to be light and easy to wear.
Nicola was the perfect pattern. It is such a beautiful dress that is so well designed. It features a tulip skirt and petal sleeves. It really only deserves to be made in a floral fabric!
It has a semi fitted bodice with a nicely flowing wrap skirt that is not too tight across the hips.
I made a few modifications, omitting the lining and facing due to fabric restrictions. More information can be found on my blog Sew Independent.
