A very simple jersey dress I made for a friend as a Christmas present. The bodice is very loose fitting so I added waist ties so that it can be worn as fitted as you want.
I also added a collar for a bit of detail and finished all the edges with bias binding and the seams with french seams. I LOVE making bias binding at the moment and it’s so easy with Collette patterns’ tutorial http://www.coletterie.com/tutorials-tips-tricks/continuous-bias-tape-tutorial
Very pleased with how it turned out and it looks nice on so I hope she likes it!
