Breezy Dress for Aritst Market

Added Jun 14, 2010

Japan, Japan






Hi friends!! I have 2 breezy dresses to show you all.
These are the same design as my “I love vintage dress”.
For the craft show coming in July, I am now trying to make more and more dresses.
I made matching sash belt and scrunchie.
Sash belt is very useful when you don’t have a right kind of belt for a dress.
You can also use scrunchie to tie the sash belt. It looks like a flower then;)

Information about the craft show is here.

Material Notes

cotton, polyester, button,




Garment Type
Casual, Vintage
Cotton, Polyester

    would be great way to use vintage fabrics, not too fussy but shows of the fabric in a body flattering way.

    great sewing!

      Thank you! Yes, the scrunchie is easy to make. I use 70cm of fabric and 28 cm of elastic band.

      I wish I could share pattern easily. Well, I suggest to use any of your loose tops pattern and make the bottom longer, that’s all I did for mine.
      So, if you have a chance, give it a shot;)

    This is a super nice dress! Comfortable, feminine, simple yet elegant! I love plain dresses with a attitude and this one has all that! The print worked really well with the design too!

      Oh thank you so much!! I am glad that it still can be feminine even though it’s made for casual and comfy purpose.

      Thank you!! It should be more comfy with linen fabric which I wanna try in summer time.

    I absolutely love the simplicity of this design. I have been planning on making something similar for a while and I think I can adapt my one piece top pattern to this very easily!

      OH yes, you can use any kind of loose tops pattern and make the bottom long. That’s what I did. It’s so comfy and perfect for humid and hot summer time!

      Well, if you have a loose shirt pattern, you can just make the bottom line longer and that’s all;)
      Easy Breezy!

      Hi, thank you! For this dress, I used my t-shirt pattern and made it just long. If you have any loose tops pattern, you can make it;)
