|Everyone needs a hot pink corduroy wiggle dress to brighten a winter's day, right?|
I used Butterick 7434 and it was a fun experience. You only had to use one pattern piece to make this jumper. All the shaping was done with the darts. I enjoyed this novel experience and learned a new method of construction using this pattern.
Vintage styles like these are great because it is easier to adapt it to our modern ungirdled, uncorseted bodies. Add a tad extra seam allowance to center front and back and take smaller darts and we still have a sleek dress without a bunch of redrafting. It also gives you more wiggle room with the size you buy ;) They are also a super quick make!
So I took a cruise around our Etsy shops to see if I could find anything similar for you all!
|Dress with POCKETS!!|
|Basic or with options.|
If you aren't into V necks, this has a lovely round neck with collar options. You can also add sleeves with this pattern.
There are lots of other ways to get that hip hugging wiggle silhouette and you can find them by searching keywords like sheath dress, wiggle dress, pencil skirt or slim skirt.
Confess now, have you made yourself a wiggle dress? Which pattern did you use?
