This is a dress I based on a trusty and simple pattern by Angela Kane. I sliced it and turned the pieces over the stripey jersey fabric at 45 degrees, in order achieve that pieced look. The black fabric is also jersey. It looks the same front and back, and I tried to match the stripes properly on the sides and shoulders, but for some reason unknown to this novice seamstress, they ended up mismatched.
Mmm, basting might have been a good idea, come to think of it.
Thrifted jersey material.
