My favourite style of dress to wear in the summer is a loose fit, elasticated waist dress. I have a couple in my wardrobe that I wear regularly but decided I would try to make my own version having the flexibility of fabric choices.
It has a simple shape so was fairly easy to trace for a first time self-draft, the pieces were; bodice front, bodice back, skirt front, skirt back and front and back neck facing.
The construction was a fun one to put together, an easy make in one session. The green version was the first one I made and was really pleased with the fit so decided to make the same dress with this lovely black floral viscose fabric I had. I’m really happy with both these makes and am on the look out for a lovely soft cotton fabric for my next version.
