Flowy Jumper No Pattern Dress

Added Apr 16, 2008

Midwest, Minneso...






I loosely followed Nayantara’s how-to for a no-pattern jumper dress. I bought this flowy, slippery fabric to make a skirt about a year ago but hadn’t used it yet, and knew it’d be perfect for this project. I didn’t have enough fabric to follow the directions, so I just used 2 rectangles instead of the shaped pieces. Everything on it is finished except the sash around the waist, which I left a bit undone partially because I was sick of making tubes (the neck tube is a few sewn together because that fabric wasn’t long enough to make one whole) and partially because I liked it looking a little deconstructed.
Silly me, I left the price sticker on when I washed the material, and there was a huge white spot where it had been on the front of the dress, so I made a pocket and just stuck it on there!
I’m so excited to wear this dress.

Material Notes

ribbed stretch cotton (for neck tie and waist sash)
some kind of floaty,slippery, opaque fabric





My friend Tristan for letting me use his sewing machine (again!)

Nayantara for a great how-to

    Great dress. I love the colours of the fabric and the ribbons.
