I’m loving this reddish-orangey-coral jersey dress I made this week, which was inspired partly by Burdastyle members sprucedoll’s “How-do-you-Bardot Maillot” and Oonabaloona’s “Birthday Date Dress,” which both featured chevron stripes created by cutting striped fabric on the bias. I made the pattern for this by draping on my dressform, and sewed the whole thing on my serger, even the blind hem. The bodice is double-layered, with white jersey underneath to give it a bit more support (and a faux piped neckline). The skirt was super simple: just two long rectangles sewn together and gathered. I made a waistband, but ended up wearing a belt on top. I blogged about it here: http://mybeaubaby.blogspot.com/2011/08/chevron-striped-jersey-dressand-great.html
