Description

Striped fabric is nice sewing with. The opening back of this dress makes it more interesting and it’s great for a summer party :) I have used courtelle jersey which has a bit more hold than viscose jersey. I like the gathering at the sides and the back, and it makes the dress feminine.

    Beautiful dress Ellen! Great idea to use vertical stripes….Horizontal stripes scare me a little bit…
