I had an idea for a casual dress I wanted to make. I wanted a dress that would be open at the back but with a strip of fabric down the middle…specifically a dress I could wear with a bandeau bra.
I thought I would have a go at making it from my head as there was no pattern close to what I had in mind.
I chose jersey material as its nice and soft. Not the easiest to work with given im a beginner. I think it turned out ok and I designed it to wear with a belt.
I definately learnt a couple of things while making this dress though! The straps are too long for example…I may fix this eventually…
