Description

Boat (?) neck dress made from African Wax Print Fabric.
Yet another dress with no pattern. Just imagined it in my head and cut!
Sleeves are folded up and then held with the strip and button….not sure what that’s called.

It took me a couple of hours to make it and I wore it the very next day! : )

P.S: STILL staying away from the zipper!
“Courage TatusWelle….Courage……the zipper is your friend”
Hahaha!

    Really nice! Looks great on you. When it comes to zips, I’ve finally come to the conclusion that basting or tacking it in before you machine it ends up with a higher success rate and less unpicking! Good luck
