Very cute! Threads had an article a few months ago about doing this. It might be worthwhile to look it up as you were so successful with this idea.

This is a muslin attempt? Wow, I wouldn't have guessed, it looks great! Love the colors and mixed prints on the fabric, too.

Gorgeous dress - and I LOVE the fabric. It's a beautiful colour and print.

Lovely summer dress! Well done. I wish I had the energy to make myself a dress too (it's so warm here)! And I think the fabric is really nice ;)

Do you guys think I need an FBA? I've been looking at some other similar patterns and they all seem to have that horizontal wrinkles. Maybe it's part of the design?

That's amazing! You did a great job of morphing the two patterns. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing the "morphing" process.

Lovely dress. The fabric is very nice too. You could always retrace and try a small FBA, but you are right about all of this style seeming to have the vertical 'pull'. Too much of an FBA might affect how the cowl drapes. It's always worth a try tho.

Yes, the draped bias front dresses/blouses all seem to have a bit of 'pull' on them. I think it has a lot to do with the way the fabric drapes and pulls the bias down over the bustline - even on the smallest bustline. A small FBA might help slightly. It is a great pattern. Love how you morphed it into a dress.

Cute top! I 'think' I have this pattern, but can't find patterns on Burdamode to verify. I love this style as well and plan to trace off the same version of this from the latest Ottobre Woman magazine.

Great idea to blend the two patterns for a dress & a beautiful outcome! (Muslin? You gotta be kidding!)

Wow, what a great experiment! Don't you love when your great idea actually works?

Beautiful dress on you Deepika! I love the fabric choice too! I've done that before with patterns and it's a great way to have a few different outfits from one great pattern. Great work!

So pretty on you! I'd hem it up a bit more, otherwise, perfect.
