Description

I used a light, slightly stretchy cotton fabric. I didn’t use any patterns, I improvised by simply draping the fabric on the dress form. The upper part is very straightforward, without any darts. I cut the skirt in a simple A-line, using my usual measures for the back and making a slightly wider front part. I also cut the front part a bit longer. I gathered the skirt under the bust and then added a decorative strap to hide the gathering.

I got the idea for the sleeves from the New Look 6000 dress. I made them 3/4, and used red buttons for contrast.
