Hey Peeps! Part one of the sew-a-long is going to cover choosing your size, tracing your pattern and making alterations to the pattern pieces. I also talk you through cutting out your fabric (as I didn’t film this).

When cutting out your flounces you will need to cut four of the bodice flounce and 4 of the front skirt flounce. The back skirt flounce is cut on the fold so you will need to cut 2 of this piece (not 4 as I state in the video) instead of the 1 the pattern calls for.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them for you.

Fabric wise you want something with good drape, mine is a viscose fabric. Rayons, crepes etc will work really well. Similar Fabrics to the one I used;
