Colour-blocking The Shell Dress
Back to journal
This is a great update for The Shell Dress: colour blocking to accentuate the line of the shoulder.
First take your pattern, draw a line to mimic the shoulder seam - the width between the line and the shoulder can vary depending on the look you wish to create.
Trace of the different sections, remember to add a seam allowance for the new seam.
Stitch the colour block pieces together first then make up your pattern as instructed.
The finished effect is a flattering line to the shoulder, drawing attention to the face.
