Stretchy Prototype

Wauwatosa, Wisco...






This all in one tshirt and double dress is a prototype dress I made out of cheaper fabric before I use my more expensive frabric. Its 2 sweatheart neckline dresses cut out and a partial tshirt all sewn together with pale pink glow in the dark thread (it really does work). The sides don’t match perfectly but both sides are the same. For winter I am going to wear it with black opaque tights. I also made the braided neck/belt thing. I got my original idea from American Appareal. I did not use a pattern for this.

Material Notes

thin gray stretch fabric, thicker lime green stretch (thrifted), thin teal stretch fabric, pink glow in the dark thread

    I love how you designed this, i always have trouble doing rounded seams for a sweetheart neckline detail, i never thought of overlapping 2 necklines (doh!). It’s really nice!
