Inspired by the adorable Mociun dress. The fabric is cotton batik, it’s amazingly comfortable and it smells so good.
The shape of the dress is very simple, the idea with the tie-front is just brilliant. I’m sure that Caitlin Mociun is a genius. My version is looser than Mociun’s as I don’t like fitted dresses. The bodice has a couple of small darts on the side and the skirts are just big rectangles gathered on the top. Sounds like all of my dresses! I also made a couple of hidden pockets on the side seams.
