This is a simple sun dress I made using Simplicity 2417. This pattern is great because it uses such a small amount of fabric (yet still has a fuller skirt), which was perfect because I only had 1 meter to work with!
1 meter of 150 wide polyester cotton blend fabric. Lined with a cotton batiste.
25cm invisible zip (on the short side for this dress)
Gutternman thread (because gutterman is the BEST duh…hehe I’m a sewing nerd).
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
