San Francisco, C...
This dress is slinky and gold! My two favs.. It has a stretch gold and black zebra like pattern(kinda see through..but not), and a key hole in the back(I try to make shirts tht enhance my back tattoos without saying “look i’ma back tattoo!” yadig), I chose to bind the edges with a gold jersey knit, and the bottom hem is a stretch lace zig zag stitched over the top. The dress has cap sleeves,and I like that i can wear it as flirty dress with leggings or as a tunic like shirt with jeans.
1 3/4’s yard of any stretch knit(I had a polyester nylon mix), 1 yard of contrasting jersey or ribbing, 3+" lace for bottom hem, or a thick band of the same ribbing, and thread!
Big props to Ms. Coco this was a trying drape due to the strech of the material and the binding!
