Here’s the last of my work dresses for archaeological excavations.. The pattern I used for this dress is the same as a pattern I already used for my first Stylish while digging dress.. Just made a couple of changes.. The pattern is #125 from Burda 06/2012.. This time I didn’t make drawstring shoulder seams, just regular seams.. I added a waist tie and pockets.. While cutting the fabric for front pieces, I made a big mistake because I was in a hurry.. As you can see, the fabric pattern is not symmetric, it’s a little off grain.. Usually, with prints, I cut every piece separate, so the pattern would fall in its place.. This time, I was cutting two layers at the same time, and you can see the result.. I didn’t place correctly the fabric that was under, or it has moved.. It’s a bit difficult to hold rayon in one place.. After that irritating mistake, the back I’ve made perfectly as I could.. In the end, this dress is meant to survive dust, sweat and tears on summer archaeological campaigns..
