I am officially addicted to these dresses…seriously, y’all…it’s clinical!
These dresses are made from two identical “rectangles” of fabric…but the rectangle is narrower at the bust than at the hip, I just don’t know what that shape is called.
The bodice has encased elastic, and I serge the hem – so fast, so easy, so awesome!
I prefer to use 100% quilting weight cotton; however, I have also used poly blends and silky fabrics. The sashes/belts hold the dress better when everything is cotton.
