Of course there is more than one way to skin a cat (sorry, cat theme today). I considered creating this look by lengthening Megan Neilsen’s Briar top, fitting it in the waist and adding some Audrey-style back darts. I couldn’t go down that route without perfecting the fit of the Briar arms and shoulders first (= too much like hard work). So, I traced the Audrey dress pattern to the hips making sure to carefully mark the waistline. I lined up the Staple dress pattern with my waistline marking and blended from the hip to the dip.
The fabric is bamboo jersey and was bought in August 2013 (pat on the back for me keeping up with Stash Diet 2014) at Truro Fabrics the same time as I bought the fabric for my original Staple Dress. Just one more fabric to sew and that’s the Truro haul sewn up. Woo
