DIY: FREE Sewing Pattern and Tutorial To Recreate This Alberta Ferretti Dress




Because I'm really starting to love the idea of making your own dress, choosing your own fabric and saving a lot of money. Here's another FREE pattern I came across today, and yes it is very modest, and you could style it in different ways. You can tailor it for summer days in floral fabric, or for winter and cooler months, good in boots, sandals, or high heels. And with the right fabric you can recreate this Alberta Ferretti Dress from Resort 2015 Collection:

I love how versatile, modest and elegant this dress can be, and did I mention the pattern has six style option for the bodice, sleeves and skirt. Aside from the pattern you could download her instruction and how to custom make it according to your like.

Sew Yourself Some Dolce & Gabbana Inspired Dress

Anybody want some dress like this one?



Perhaps for a more modest appearance we can lengthen the bottom hem. 

I'm really glad to have stumbled on this blog who gave the complete tutorial for sewing the dress, FREE! I think the pattern is perfect for beginner, no hassle about making and cutting those sleeves, and for the red embellishment, instead of the beads and corals she opted for lace motif appliques. Isn't that clever?



This is how her finished project looked like. I'm so excited to make one for myself once I gather the fabric and appliques needed.
