DIY Michael Kors - How to slash and spread sheath dress pattern to get the twist 'n' gather effect on the front. I think pulling that gather to the side and higher toward the waist would be much more flattering, but the tutorial will work for that too!
My pirate top was too small, so i've reconstructed it into a dress with linen & jersey & lots of serging/ overlocking. Huge thanks to Helen Carter, Secret Lentil for the inspiration! Haven't thought of a name yet tho' .
