|Pattern like I want it to look before adding seam allowances and pattern pieces|
I drew with rulers and careful hand the entire layout of the dress. Then I folded it down the center and made sure it was symmetrical (change drawing/trim to even out).
|Paper placed over Pattern and traced to make smaller pieces of the pattern.|
Next, I put the tracing paper over the full drawn dress and made each piece by tracing and adding seam allowances.
Always remember to do seam allowances if you make a pattern!

|Cut and Ready to Sew|
Cut and place on the appropriate fabrics and cut and sew! If you have a basic knowledge of how a garment is pieced together, you should be fine. This one didn't have sleeves! Yea! That's the beauty of making your own patterns- you make them as simple as you want.
