Description

This is my very first dress I’ve ever made. And I did it without mannequin or real pattern. Just saw quite cheap elastic fabric in the shop and i bought it. So this simple project should be just a try to sew elastic. But I think it turned out to pretty great swing dress for me.

In the last photo you can see my sketches for this dress :)

Elastic fabric, cotton thread

      thanx. I cut out the details, then pined them (dont like to stich), carefully tried on, looked to the mirror and then saw where I need to cut bigger angle or to make a bit narrower. It was a real challenge for me. But I promise to share more my finished project. 2 are on the way ! :)
