I made this very easy dress out of green metallic jersey material. I didn’t use any patterns because I knew I wanted something simple and streamlined. The fabric has a beautiful texture and drape as it is, so I didn’t want to cut it up into pieces and sew a lot of seams. Just wanted a slinky dress that is form fitting. I pretty much used one of my shirts as a pattern, then made it longer to make it into a dress. I cut out the front and back pieces, then sewed them both together.
I was pretty happy with it until I started taking pictures with it. My boyfriend said it looked a little stiff for some reason, and after seeing the pictures, I sort of agree. I wanted it as a slinky yet not skanky semi-casual dress, something i’d wear to an evening date. It’s definitely form fitting, but perhaps I made it too long for a dress of this type? Maybe it should either be floor length or a little bit shorter?
