Camel drawstring dress

Added Oct 2, 2011

by woman

Kuala Lumpur, Ma...






Made this dress out of jersey for a trip. I like packing jersey outfits for travel because it crumples less and seems more comfortable especially when the travel involves long hours of car ride.

I used the instructions from the existing project below— very fun and easy to make! :D One thing missing in this pic— my oversized sunnies! heheheh

Anyway, while taking the pics after getting back from our trip, Jiggles was curious and kept walking into the pics. She seemed to like the dress as well hahaha :P

      i agree with u! i love prints, but i also think the simplicity of a solid colour like a good neutral can be classy. and thank u for the comment! :D

    Do you have a pattern for this dress? I tried to make a similarly shaped dress, but I couldn’t get the ratios right. But yours looks perfect! I would love to know what pattern you used.

    Looked twice at Jiggles, we have a similar looking and huge dog named Stella, who loves her picture taken.
