this is my first dress i really did from scratch. i think i have to learn a lot about drawing patterns, but is fun to try out. i wanted to do a nice dress for the pool. easy to put on and off and comfortable. there are no zippers and the fabric is a tiny bit elastic. the stripes of the skirt are actuelly pockets. the free back is not made for wearing a bikini, which is a little sad, but haven’t thought enough on this little detail… :-)
