Breezy Dress for Aritst Market

Added Jun 14, 2010

Hi friends!! I have 2 breezy dresses to show you all.
These are the same design as my “I love vintage dress”.
For the craft show coming in July, I am now trying to make more and more dresses.
I made matching sash belt and scrunchie.
Sash belt is very useful when you don’t have a right kind of belt for a dress.
You can also use scrunchie to tie the sash belt. It looks like a flower then;)

Information about the craft show is here.

    would be great way to use vintage fabrics, not too fussy but shows of the fabric in a body flattering way.

    great sewing!

      Thank you! Yes, the scrunchie is easy to make. I use 70cm of fabric and 28 cm of elastic band.

      I wish I could share pattern easily. Well, I suggest to use any of your loose tops pattern and make the bottom longer, that’s all I did for mine.
      So, if you have a chance, give it a shot;)

    This is a super nice dress! Comfortable, feminine, simple yet elegant! I love plain dresses with a attitude and this one has all that! The print worked really well with the design too!

      Oh thank you so much!! I am glad that it still can be feminine even though it’s made for casual and comfy purpose.

      Thank you!! It should be more comfy with linen fabric which I wanna try in summer time.

    I absolutely love the simplicity of this design. I have been planning on making something similar for a while and I think I can adapt my one piece top pattern to this very easily!

      OH yes, you can use any kind of loose tops pattern and make the bottom long. That’s what I did. It’s so comfy and perfect for humid and hot summer time!

      Well, if you have a loose shirt pattern, you can just make the bottom line longer and that’s all;)
      Easy Breezy!

      Hi, thank you! For this dress, I used my t-shirt pattern and made it just long. If you have any loose tops pattern, you can make it;)
