Los Angeles, Cal...
Easy peasy Anda! I didn’t even include the elastic casing, just used a belt to cinch the waist. Since the dress was so simple, I figured that it was the perfect way to showcase a busy floral print like this one. I wanted to use a fabric with nice drape, so chose this polyester spandex knit because it worked with my budget. Only problem is, it doesn’t breath well which isn’t too pleasant on a hot day! (Next time, I’ll use an all natural fabric that breathes and is more eco-friendly.) Overall though, very happy with the fit and simplicity of the project.
