A style I created and draft the pattern accordingly to make a dress from my left over fabrics that I have in my stash. I am in a cheerful mood and the dress reflects that. It started out as a little black dress and ended up being a glowing awesome dress
The hibicus floral print was not enough it was a small piece so I used it as the focal point to add vibrancy and life to the dress. It could only make the front piece.
I then contrast the print with the second least colour which is the green to make a sash and a standing collar. I place a green metal zipper at the side. Four loops was placed on the skirt to hold he sash in place
I give the dress a modernized sleeve not the regular sleeve we are use to. I got the sleeve inspiration from a burdastyle magazine. To make the sleeves I cut two rectangular piece with length 18" and weight 3".
I am very proud of the result and wore it to church. I filled the entire air with fun and a cheerful vibe.
I hope my pics bring out that cheerful vibes for all to see
1 yd black thick fabric….it feels very upholstery to me
1 green metal zipper
1/4 yd green
a small piece of floral print….too small to measure (stretch cotton)
