Hazel Park, Mich...
Another experiment with stripes. I had made a variation of this dress in a solid red, but I knew I wanted to showcase the unusual seams a little more. So I tried a stripe.
The entire dress is one piece of fabric. The only real “seam” is in the center back — everything else is a dart! The armhole and neck edges are bias-bound. The shoulders come together in an overlap, back to front (similar to the way the shoulders are in a baby’s onesie).
I’ve had a lot of fun draping and modifying this dress!
