This is the first proper dress I made with the sewing machine I got for my birthday last year. I based it off a dress I saw in a store and all it is four piece of fabric sewn together with a strip of elastic at the top and shirring at the waist. (I needed four pieces because the fabric is a tad see through :/) Anyways I’ve worn it a few times and its super comfy, although I think I’d rather the elastic around the top to be a bit tighter.
Something slightly see through and a bit stretchy. I absolutely love the pattern on it which looks like somebody’s painted patches onto it :)
