I was very excited to see this pattern from Papercut Patterns. I've been curious to try a pattern from them but most of their other designs are not to my taste. However, the Clover dress is simple and lovely and I wasn't overly intimidated by the model with a waist smaller than one of my legs.
The dress runs to muumuu dimensions quickly, so a belt is definitely key to making this dress work!
There are instructions for making the tassel belt, but I skipped them. For the dress, I used a very nice light and flowing rayon challis. I suspect the drape is also key but I might try and make this out of a light cotton voile and see what happens...
Pattern: Clover dress from PaperCut patterns
Fabric: Joann Fabrics rayon challis with navy rayon challis detail.
Cut & Size: Creative grading... Medium at the neckline and shoulders to L mid bust and XL at the hips.
Notes: Pattern has only 1 cm seam allowance so I added 1 cm more when cutting... as consistently as possible. Flat fells seams at the bust detail, french seams elsewhere. Sleeves are not turned in, bias tape bound at cut edges.
