Description

This dress is made from a great knit fabric that just does not wrinkle easily. I made it about 2 years ago, while I was a freshman at college and had an idea for a simple jersey dress with braided straps. I found the basic pattern from Simplicity and decided to alter the strap pattern. I made the straps wider, cut them in three at the front, braided them, and then attached them on the back. It’s a very simple dress and can dressed up and down, depending on the accessories, and it packs great!

    It looks very good and also comfy. Usually I don’t like dresses to be worn over tshirts, but here I do : )
