I pulled this dress out of my fabric bin, unfinished. I started it about 15 years ago before I got into sewing clothes. It was from a vintage pattern but I didn’t make note; likely some kind of easy shift dress. The zipper remained to be inserted but I decided to forgo it. I made the facing into a bound edge and added bra-keepers to keep it on my shoulder as it continually wanted to fall off. It’s not a great creation but it’s wearable at work (with an apron overtop) and I’m not worried about accidentally bleaching it!
