Rush dress but good dress

If you follow me on Instagram (hayek.m83), you know by now that I have loads of projects in progress. This was NOT one of them.

One of my best friends got married recently, and I couldn’t decide whether I wanted a new dress to wear to his wedding or not, and in the end decided not to make one. Until the last day before the wedding that is. But since the time left was one evening, the following set of requirements materialized:
- It has to be a simple quick to sew pattern.
- I have to have this pattern in my collection already.
- I have to have all the required fabrics and supplies.

And remember there’s fabric to win! :)

Material Notes

I think the main fabric is polycotton, a lot pf polyester, a bit of cotton.
Lining is 100% viscose




Garment Type
Vintage, Evening Wear
