my last summer project i wanted to be really colorful and bright. i really wanted something that would pop. something without spending a ton. so! i went out bought 3 packs of men undershirts, ripped them apart and made three different dresses. later, after a 30 minute video, i tie-dyed them and this was the end result. gotta say, i love them! i want to festival to happen in my town so i can wear this!

    Beautiful ! I imagine you can’t really plan the result ? It must be a (good ?) surprise each time !

    Wow, my girls and I love these patterns. Did you create your own prints on the fabric? if you did can you tell me how did you do that. Thanks ..

      all of my patterns were free hand, but this one in particular was a bit drafted. the back is about 5" lower from the neckline and i created it because i wanted it to feel breezy, lik eon the beach. so i put more thought into this one.

      if you have a sloper of your measurements, take 3" fromt he center front and and 5" from the center back. a 2" strip line( that includes seam allowance, it;s a jersey knit) and make the dress as long as you want it. viola!
