Description

Just a pretty spring dress.

It started as just four mostly rectangular pieces, with arm and neck openings. As I tried it though, I ended up pulling in the waist a couple inches, dropping the neck in the front and back, adding the strap in the back, and pulling the hem up almost three inches.

I’m at school, so I don’t have access to an iron at all, which made all the hems and visible seams (like straight down the center of the front!!!) rather stressful, but I think they turned out alright.

I’m wondering whether the tie should be a different color, so that it stands out more? Other thoughts, suggestions, etc.?

Material Notes

About 1.5 yards crepe de chine
