This dress was surprisingly easy to make, and I guess that’s the joyful result of having a basic block that is nearly perfect! I altered the pattern from my basic block and was a clever girl and made a toile, just to make sure the pattern would work at all. The fabric is slightly stretchy, so the dress turned out a little too big at first. I did it the easy way, and just pinned the side seams, and adjusted the seams. The dress is still a little roomy around the waist, and together with the stretchy fabric it turned out that I could skip the zip! It feels like cheating! The drawback is that it won’t look good with the intended belt I was going to make, but I will sure make a second dress in a different material requiring a zip, and then the waistline may be tighter also.
With this dress, I can twist and shout, hop, skip and jump all night long.
