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 :)
