Self drafted pattern – as usual.
This was actually my first attempt to use my overlocker on jersey fabric.
And I made this dress twice. The first time I was not fully satisfied with it, so I took it apart, added darts, pleated instead of gathering, reattached the belt (probably even inverted the side).
The dress is sooooo comfy :) Viscose fabric makes it so soft and lets the skin breathe. I can’t wait for spring to wear it.
Some may say it looks like a dressing gown, BUT with right accessories it is going to be an outstanding outfit :)
