Los Angeles, Cal...
This form fitting number is the “Belle de Jour” dress from Wendy Mullin’s book Sew U: Home Stretch (which is, hands down, the best sewing purchase I made all year!) and it was incredibly simple to make. The blue fabric is a rayon stretch knit (with a tiny hint of sheen). I don’t think the dress is supposed to be this body hugging, as I decided to make it x-small instead of the more-appropriate small. Anyway, I squeeze into it alright and as long as I can remember to suck in the gut, I think I’ll be ok.
