Sweatshirt dress

I made this dress since I wanted a comfortable, warm and stylish dress.
The bodice pattern is based to two different top patterns from Ottobre. The skirt I improvised. I learned that you should not have a pleat like that in a skirt at center back, since it makes my behind look huge!
But I like it anyway and will probably wear it alot.

    Really cute. Wouldn’t take much work to change the pleats in the back into darts and smooth the material over your backside. Would be more flattering. But the front of the dress is perfect! great idea, very stylish and comfortable looking!

    Trenn die hintere Naht doch einfach auf und leg die Falten in die andere Richtung und näher an die Seitennähte, dann würde es hinten nicht so wegstehen ;) Sonst ist es sehr schick!

      I would unpick the seam but since it is serged I know I will have problems, specially when it comes to sewing it back on.

    Sieht toll aus! :) Ich mag solche Kleider, vor allem an Tagen, an denen ich keine Lust hab, mich damit zu beschäftigen, was ich anziehen soll. ;)
