Tunic Dress

I have been hoping to start dressmaking for some time but have been nervous. I didn't want to spend money on a pattern and fabric and buttons and zips and then the finished product be totally unwearable. So I decided to try and find a free pattern. The problem is most free dress patterns I've found are for children. So I decided to adapt a child's pattern for me. I used this tutorial here.  
I used a non stretch vest top to make the pattern in the same way as in the tutorial. I took over the dining room table to assemble all my equipment.
Then I sewed my socks off and finished super fast. It as a really easy pattern to follow and a great dress to make as a first go. 

The only part I left out was the waste band because I tried my dress on before sewing it in and it fit really well as it was. My button fastening was bright pink 
I was chuffed with the result and now I am obsessed with pinning other dress patterns ready for the next project.

Have you found any good patterns? Or have you adapted anything? I hope so. X
