this is one of my favorite garments that i’ve ever made, probably because i didn’t expect it to turn in to much of anything. i bought some fabric on clearance for $3 a meter and figured i could try to make it into something magical, and guess what. it worked.
the dress has a mock button front, a zipper up the back and cap sleeves. the pattern is extremely simple, and i frankensteined it from some commercial patterns. to make it a little more special i used a lot of scraps for ruffling details around the neckline and hem. pair that with an attached midriff tie and some vintage-looking buttons and you have yourself a winner!
this is just a cheap polyester georgette, but it’s super soft and catches the air really well. the print i chose is a little subdued, so paired with the frilly accents it creates a really nice balance.
