Since I’ve been home this summer I’ve been finding all of my past sewing projects. A lot of them are still only half way finished so lately I’ve been completing them. This is a dress that I started last summer, but I never finished it until now!
Last summer I fell in love with oriental style dresses. They have a really simple and beautiful shape that I think is lovely. The pattern is my own that I designed and drafted. The dress is a sheath dress with a standing collar, cap sleeves, hook and eyes connecting the front bodice, buttons down the back, and a vent flap in the back of the skirt. There are also a lot of curved seaming detail in the bodice and the skirt
I’m slightly sad, because the fabric is such a heavy print a lot of the seam details don’t show up very well. I’d like to make another version with piping in the seams to make them pop; especially the detail seams of the skirt.
