Inspired by this dress, serendipitously facilitated by Peneloping’s clever use of bias binding for the trim on her lovely version and then the discovery of a suitable length of navy blue linen-ish fabric at a yard sale!
The pattern is dress ‘R’ from ‘Stylish Dress Book – wear with freedom’. I changed the gathers at the front to a short sewed-down pleated section (as it was too balloonish with the gathers), added side-seam pockets (utilising an online tutorial of course) and shortened the sleeves.
So maybe enough over-the-head loose and flared tops for now? I think I’ll make the next thing I sew a fitted something!
some kind of navy blue cotton or linen blend broad cloth; light grey bias binding
