A simple blue dress made from lightweight embroidered cotton. For the bodice, I used a t-shirt pattern similar to the Lydia in order to get the shape right. The bodice features six pin tucks along the front. My first try at that technique! I basically used a large trapezoid to create the skirt and gathered it before attaching the bodice. There is a zipper in back. The tucked sash was an after-thought, as the dress didn’t fit as well as I had originally planned. I think the covered buttons add a vintage feel to this simple little dress.
