I wanted to add a few more of these types of dresses to my wardrobe, so I decided to make one yesterday. Finding the fabric in my stash was actually the most difficult part. I have a TON of fabric, but finding something that was comfortable, pretty, not see-through, and large enough to make a dress was HARD. I finally settled on this print. It has a VERY 1950's vibe to it, and also Scandinavia undertones, which I decided to just embrace with the contrasting navy binding.
It was a pretty easy project. It consists of three pieces, no waistline, no darts. I cut it on an A-line, leaving it on the roomy side. I spent less than two hours total making it.
It isn't meant to be worn out and about, but it's fine for home stuff, and feels more 'cute' than knit shorts and a baggy tee!
