La Plata, Argentina
A cool (?) dress, perfect for the summer. Wearing it is like wearing a long tank top (and I think it looks a bit like an ancient Greek peplos)
I used only the pieces #1 and #2; raise the waist line 10 cm; sew the elastic band directly on the fabric using a zig-zag stitch; and I gathered the back piece but not the frontal one.

Pattern of the Week
Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
Member Project of the Week
Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
