Description

This is a dress I made for my sister. I drew the pattern for the bodice, I used 3" wide elastic band for the midriff and the skirt is simply a gathered rectangle. I also sew an exposed zipper ( first time, see below for credit) and I thought the red one will be flashy. The bodice is lined with stretch lining and the polka dot fabric is made from stretch cotton.
It’s my first no pattern dress and I’m really happy with the result.
