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.
