This is a one-shoulder dress I made from a pattern of the “Shirley Dress” found here: http://fitzpatterns.myshopify.com/collections/free/products/2311-shirley-off-the-shoulder-dress-sewing-pattern.
I altered the asymmetrical skirt to be straight across, (accidentally) thinned the width of the belt, and added thread loops. This is supposed to be a dress, but as I am uncomfortable with the short length (and as this was my first gung-ho project, I didn’t think enough to compare the length to my own body before cutting:-)), I wear it over jeans or slacks, kind of slouch-y.
Made from a Travel Knit.
