I made a dress today! I bought this super-soft purple knit fabric months ago–around Christmas I think? and had yet to do anything with it. I had been doing some mental fashion designing for a few days now and this is what I came up with.
I used a tank top as a template, folded it in half, placed it on my fabric and drew a dress template with a white crayon in an A-line fashion (I am really up on the latest sewing tools here). The dress is just a back and a front with self-fabric binding at the neck and around the sleeve to make the straps.
I added a self-fabric belt to pull it all together. I love how it looks. It is so soft, drapes well and flows beautifully.
It is always fun to design a dress and bring it to life in one afternoon. Such a sweet addition to my summer wardrobe!
