Description

I used a thrifted cotton sheet for this version of my summer racerback dress. This dress has no closure and fits over the head and is snug around the arms and neck. The edges of the neck and arms are edged to add strength and the dress is cool and swingy.

    Thanks ladies! The dress is based on one that was produced by a major retailer with a three letter name… Since I knew the dress I purchased fit (and it didn’t have a zipper either), I was sure this one would work too. When I’m copying a dress, I usually lay it down and measure it with my quilting ruler and mark it with chalk lines to help. I hope that helps a bit!
