striped sundress

Holland, Michiga...






I found this fabric on sale at my local fabric store for $2 a yard and planned on using it as a wearable muslin of this pattern. I’m really happy with the result. The dress is really comfortable; I do have to fix one sleeve as it seems to rub a little. I added pockets, because I love to have them. This dress pattern made that addition really easy.

Material Notes

    I love it ! It is a perfect summer dress but If you made it in a silky fancy fabric it could also be a beautiful cocktail dress. Great pattern, nice job!

    It is a simple, beautiful dress and the colou’r gives it a very fresh look

    I love this; it’s so cute. This pattern is definitely going on my (very long and never ending) to-make list.
