Last week, I had seen this vintage inspired dress at Target and a couple similar on ModCloth.com that had a jersey tank top, a thick piece of elastic at the waist and a gathered cotton skirt bottom. I really liked them all and thought I could replicate them. I had a date set with my BF to go to a local coffeeshop called the Drunken Monkey, so I set about making my own copy to wear for my date. I hustled and finished it about 45 minutes before I needed to leave. But it turned out well enough and my BF liked it!
I used a tank top I had to trace the pattern for the top of the dress and just a rectangle piece of material for the bottom. I added the collar ruffle from my own design, since I have seen ruffles to be popular this season.
A light weight, thin gray jersey knit for the top, 1.5 inch black elastic, charcoal and white striped linen look fabric for skirt from clearance rack at JoAnn’s.
