Description

I fell in love with this fabric and thought it was nice for this dress pattern.
The good thing with scuba fabric is that you don’t need to overlock the seams since it doesn’t fringe, so I have just cut the edge of hem, sleeves and neck with a zig-sag scissor. As you can see I have added small slopers at the neck to fit better. I like the pocket flaps and I think it’s a nice detail.

Material Notes

Scuba and micro satin for pockets lining.

    Great dress Ellen. Cute detail with the flap lining in the solid yellow. Haven’t been a round for a while, so wanted to tell you that your “new” haircut looks terrific!

    Wow. Great choice of fabric. The colours are fab on you. There’s lots of scuba/neoprene in my local fabric shops and I keep wondering what I could do with it and this is fabulous inspiration, thank you.

    Beautiful fabric Ellen, looks lovely on you. I like your idea with the pinking shears. I see lots of lovely scuba prints made up on this site, but it’s so hard to find here sadly.

      Thanks a lot Sue! Usually I buy fabric on the web, but sometimes I’m lucky to “run over” great fabric! ;)

    Kjempe kul kjole og kult stoff! Jeg har veldig lyst til å prøve meg på scuba, må være en av de enkleste stoffer å jobbe med, men har ikke gjort noe med det enda :D

    That is a very pretty fabric and dress as well! I have never used scuba, is it similar to jersey? Lovely finishing touches with the pinky shears.

      Thanks Reka! I’m sure you will love sewing with scuba. It’s more steady than jersey, and not so stretchy.
