After I’d finished making my version of the Bed Jacket I wasn’t quite ready to give up the whole navy / red combination so I decided to make a dress to match. I have to admit, I was also having a lot of fun drafting the patterns which I’ve always been to scared to attempt before now.
For the dress, I didn’t make too many modifications aside from shortening it and removing the pockets. I wanted to keep it super simple and casual – it’s also incredibly comfortable.
