Just a simple dress. Mostly for wearing around the house, but I think it’s cute.
The bodice was modified from Burda dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves from 02/2011, which I’ve made twice before. I omitted the darts and I just guessed the skirt pattern. Nothing terribly technical. I fully lined the dress as the gingham (from Spotlight), was a little sheer, and created a casing for the tie by sewing the lining to the outer, leaving two button holes for the tie to come out.
I think it’s kinda cute, don’t you?
More sewing fun on my blog.
