Description

Pullover, above mid-knee, semi-fitted straight dresses A, B, C have elastic waist casing, stitched hem and bodice variations; dress A is sleeveless; dress B has three-quarter sleeves; dress C is sleeveless with self sash; dresses A, B, C have optional back strap; optional purchased belt.


Modifications:Skirt seam: sewn at 1/4" instead of 5/8"
Back strap: Shortened approx 3" so it would pull the shoulders up (they were drooping)

Next time:Use stretchier fabric
Make it more of an empire waist line (the seam at the waist is too low..it should hit wear you would wear the belt, but it doesn’t.)

Material Notes

This printed peachskin has a slightly sueded hand and lots of drape. With about 20% stretch across the grain, it’s great for heavier blouses, dresses and skirts. Colors include black, red and off white.

96% polyester, 4% lycra
