New Haven, Conne...
4 hours on a Saturday afternoon, and a yard and a half of cute rayon? Recipe for a sundress.
It’s a very simple pattern, two asymmetrical skirt pieces, and three pieces for the top: the front is double layered.
I’m still working on a good way to ensure against wardrobe malfunctions, I think I can take in an inch or two from the top of the strap, and tighten up the bodice immediately under the arm. I used fashion tape to hold it for a night out though, and that worked quite well.
If anyone’s interested, I do have the actual pattern pieces.
