This is the first of a few studio dresses I plan on making myself, my goal with the dresses is to make them light, breathable, easy to move in and I also want to be able to layer them for winter with tights and sweaters as well.
The dress is made from my own pattern with cf button closure plackets, front and back darts and bias finished armholes and neck. I also lined it with one layer of white cotton voile to reduce sheerness a tiny bit. Still sort of sheer but that’s alright.
cotton voile, thread, buttons
