Description

I made this super easy, breezy dress using Tessuti Fabrics’ downloadable Gabby dress pattern, coupled with their Boardwalk jersey. As I thought I needed extra length, I made the front and back dress pieces out of two pieces – I cut the upper bodice separately with the fabric at right angles. In retrospect I didn’t need the extra length, but I like the interest from the pieced bodice – phew – and the extra length will be easy to trim down if I want.

This dress is a really quick make, and easy to fit because it’s loose everywhere except the upper bodice. Although I made it in a knit, I think it would be lovely sewn up in a drapey woven fabric too.

My photos show front and back views of the dress on me (very swishy!) and also close ups of the front and back bodice. If you’d like to read more about it, I’ve also blogged the dress here.

Material Notes

1.8m of ‘Boardwalk’ jersey (viscose/elastane) from Tessuti Fabrics. The stripes are navy and red on white.
