Queens, New York...
After seeing 2 or 3 girls within the span of a week wearing similar dresses I thought “I could make that!” I had the perfect fabric in mind – some vintage fabric from my grandma’s stash that she had intended on using for shirts or a dress or something. The dress is just 2 rectangles sewn together with some elastic thread to cinch the waist. I shaped the neckline a little in the front but probably should have done it more. The dress is a little baggy but I still like it.
I made this a couple of weeks ago but haven’t worn it because it is all polyester and it has been so hot. But now that it is a yucky cold rainy day, I will wear it with some tights! If it warms up a little again, I would wear it with the white belt.
Hopefully this will be a great late summer/early fall transition dress!
