I wanted a lightweight dress for the summer. I made it in just a couple of days but the sun disappeared before I could wear it! I ran out of material so the length looks a bit weird but I think I will shorten it to the knees. The straps are annoying as they will just not stay up even after i shortened them, moved them Grrr! Double sided sticky tape to the rescue.
The next one I make, I thought I would make halter top to eliminate the slidey strap problem.
Please excuse the showing underwear, my 2yr old was tugging at me and wanting to be in the shot!
£1 a meter stuff, polyester I think.
