spaghetti strap dress

A first try at another easy pattern from the July 2013 Issue. This was the pattern for the camisole or slip but I used fabric that is suitable for a dress. The fit was good for me with very little alterations to the pattern needed. I ruched the hem a little. I like the effect but not sure if I will leave it like that because I do like the dress with a simple hem too.

Material Notes

I will try it with nylon or satin next time for lingerie as it was intended.




Garment Type
Beach, Casual

    You look amazing in this dress that you’ve made! And might I add, I LOVE how the back is draped and not straight across; that detail lends so much to the delicate and expensive feel this garment has, IMO. Anyway- point being: it’s super cute, you look fabulous….get it girl ;) I sure hope mine turns out as great as yours has! I’m going to attempt to shirr the elastic under the bust enough (and at the right places) to act more as a bra/support. It’s not really the sort of top I’d personally wear a bra with, so I wanna lift the girls and keep them nice n’ snug in case I get dance floor fever while wearing this out on warm nights. Wish me luck! And any tips/tricks are always über appreciated, as always.
