||Self Drafted Pattern:Martha Dress (Dresses)
||Inspired by the Martha Dress by Horrockses, I decided to make my own using a similar style of floral facric. Initially I downloaded the free pattern http://blog.horrocksesfashions.co.uk/2011/08/download-your-free-horrockses-dress-pattern/ and muslined it to find that the sizing was out and the side seam was way too forward. I ended up redrafting all the bodice pieces, my skirt is a different length and width to the one in the instructions and my straps are twice the width. I therefore think the dress I've made is self-drafted but it does look alot like the photo of the Martha Dress (so named after the quilt cover it is made from).
