I bought this fabric at the Salvation Army because it was too wild to resist, but I was always a bit shy to use it. However, when I got divorced, I thought that it was high time I used it to shake up my wardrobe and so this dress was born! The problem is that the fabric is 100% retro polyester and it’s very very warm to wear. Also I had to top stitch every seam because it’s impossible to press. The upside is that it’s also impossible to wrinkle!
The pattern is self-drafted. Basically it’s a t-shirt pattern with an A-line skirt. I added a few darts to the back, and sewed on a tie at the back for fun. I’m rather pleased with the capped sleeves.
