Kim dress by By Hand London

I might have this pattern in my collection for a couple of years or so. I wanted so bad to make it back then but I wasn’t brave enough until now. Kim dress has a very flattering figure with a fully lined fitted bodice, scoop or sweetheart neckline and two skirt variations. Variation 1 has a wrap – style tulip skirt while Variation 2 (the one that I made) has gathered skirt with three pleats just before the hem. It is for intermediate sewers according to the company.

SUMMARY
Sewing pattern: Kim dress by By Hand London
Size: 10
Fabric: Cotton poplin (main fabric – outside), cotton lawn for the bodice lining and Viscose lining fabric for the skirt lining
Notions: 45cm long concealed zipper from my local haberdashery
Alterations: I lined the entire dress instead of lining only the bodice. I didn’t put the skirt pleats on
Total cost: ~16 euros (cost of the pattern is ~15 euros, I have the printed version which in no longer available. That is why I’m not sure about the cost of the printed pattern)
Make another one: Yes, I would love a Kim dress in a solid colour this time

    Looks lovely. Great job. I’ve just completed a couple of these but a different version. When I get a photo I will put up. Did you find that the shoulders/neck were a problem? I followed their advice and went for a size which reflected my wait size. This caused all sorts of problems, so my advice would be use the size that fits you bust and make waitline adjustments (Tilly and ByHand have goo tutorials).
