It only took an hour to make this groovy stretch floral minidress from downtownDIY Sewing by Alice Chadwick. Creating the pattern was a snap and the garment has only four seams. Instead of finishing the edges, the pieces are cut out with pinking shears. This was the most challenging part of the project for me. Either this fabric is hard on pinking shears or I’m doing something wrong!
Stretchy knit fabric from my stash, originally purchased years ago at a thrift store.
