I’ve mentioned before that I feel that I only ever copy other people when it comes to sewing, rather than come up with my own ideas. This is probably another example of that.
I recently picked up quite a good stash of fabric from Pitt Trading. All were ex designer and most were Cue or Veronica Maine, which I think are the same company. This particular fabric is a rayon or viscose geometric-like print. Even though I had no idea what to make with it, I had to have it!
I really like the simplicity of this dress.It is comfortable and uncomplicated, just as I want my Summer days to be.:)
After initially attaching the skirt, I realised that the dress was just too blouson for me, so I removed the skirt, cut away some of the bodice length and reattached. Simple.
I love that the dress has a draw string waist so I can tighted or loosen it as needed, which was particularly important as this was my Christmas Day dress. So much turkey!
I also love the shaped hem.
Nothing on this dress is particularly groud breaking or special, but I think that simple works best sometimes.
If you are interested, this is what Cue did with the same fabric.
