Lady in red sundress

I traced off the bodice part from an old Topshop sun dress I’ve had for years as I like the way it fits. I then drafted a simple circle skirt pattern and joined it to the bodice. I made sure that the waist measurement I used for the skirt matched what would be the final waist measurement for the bodice. I added an invisible zip at the centre back seam and made some bias binding from the left over fabric for the straps. All the seams are French seams. I’m pretty happy with this as it was quite a simple make and it is really lovely to wear. The fabric was recycled from a huge shapeless old skirt I got at the flea market for a euro.
