So I just moved to Australia from Europe and needed to ship my sewing machines. After 5 agonizing months of waiting they finally arrived. As soon as I set up my new sewing room I started on this quick and dirty project. It’s a simple dress. The sleeves are basically two rectangles, with a dart at the bust. This sewn onto a wasteband, which in turn is sewn onto a simple a-line skirt. I did not even use a zipper, as I managed to squeeze into the dress without (yeah I am also lazy and couldn’t be bothered to insert a zipper). The fabric is nice and thin and I am really in love with the color and pattern, it has a vintage feel. All in all, the dress is super comfortable and ideal for the australian summer, which can be hot, very hot!
Fabric is from Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern Range
