I made this dress by cutting (or tearing as it is faster) strips of different width black and white fabric and sewing them together to get the stripey pattern. The fabric is a slightly stretchy cotton/satin blend. Then I took the Anda pattern and changed it. I am normally a size 46, but ended up using a size 38, as the Anda pattern is sooooo big. I also lowered the neckline and added some sleeve cuffs. No drawstring, The dress has a relaxed fit, but I actually like it like this! It means that I do not need a zipper, but can just throw on this dress and go! Quite happy how it turned out!
Cotton/ satin blend & thread, that’s it!
