Fun with zippers

Boulder, Colorad...






I had wanted to do something fun with this big sport zipper, and finally decided to pair it with some very feminine, light, pink fabric. I based the shape of the top part off a tank top and then just needed to add a bit more fabric at the bottom to complete the dress. There was a bit of trial and error, but it was fun to make it up as I went!

Material Notes

Lightweight cotton jersey, sport zipper

      Thanks! I kind of made my own pattern just by tracing a favorite tank top and then playing around with extending it to dress length.
