Description

a relatively quick stripey dress made from my own pattern.
I overlocked black rib around the neck and overlocked the sleeves and hem.
I took extra care to make sure the stripes lined up at the side seams which was
time consuming but definitely worth it.

The dress does not technically need a belt but I think the onlooker’s eye needs a bit of a break half way,
that pattern can make you feel a bit dizzy.
