This is a dress made of stiff, thick polyester. I love working with polyester because it is light, easy to cut, easy to sew, does not crease and easy to wash and dry. There are, of course, disadvantages (such as cannot be worn when it is very hot outside) but there we go, it’s never too hot where I live.
I made this dress with my own pattern and I think I will try it again in a print fabric. The fabric itself is very old, at least 30 years old. It was definitely purchased in the 70s, in fact just like the fabric for the red and white deux piece I posted.
The photos illustrate the pattern very well, I believe the square neckline make it actual and elegant, although the fabric is not very pretentious.
Like other projects made from this fabric, fitting is excellent because of the stretch!
No zips or buttons!
I called the “Pippa” white dress :-)) because of the now famous rear in “that” white dress.
Thick, retro polyester, embossed pattern look
