This is the first dress I’ve ever made and I think it turned out pretty alright.
Based off the “tank dress with gathered skirt” pattern from burdastyle.
I found this fabric at a thrift store for $2 and there was so much I decided to use it to make a dress. There’s probably even enough to make another. The only flaw is the arm holes are a little tight and the bust is a little loose. But this was really just a practice. Ill be making plenty more for summer!
Basic cotton materials for outer and lining.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
