The reason that this dress is called " The Perfect Lazy Dress " because it is very easy to make. This elastic gather dress can also be worn as a maxi-skirt. Perfect summer look. <3
- Measure your waist = A
- Cut elastic with "A " measurement ( The width of elastic is up to you, I used 1/2inch in this project )
- Double or Triple your waist measurement and that will be the yardage you will need for your fabric. The length is up to you.
I used chiffon for this project
