Description

A take-off of an American Apparel dress that I had gotten years ago, I made this for a cousin of mine. I used a plain zig-zag stitch, but I think I got too short of a stretch from it, so it’s tighter than I’d hoped. The fabric, though great, also didn’t seem to have as much stretch as the original. Off to try again!

Material Notes

stretch cotton/lycra jersey

    I made two of these last year. I absolutely LOVE these dresses. It’s super cute in the stripe.
