The fabric does it

I think this dress looks great but it’s all about the fabric. It’s almost as easy to make as a t-shirt: a (heavy) knit fabric, for most parts constructed with a serger. I added a zipper in the back but this was completely unneccessary. I don’t need it to put it on or off. The next iteration will have no zipper so will be even more easy to construct.

In the pictures I now see that I should have pulled the right sleeve down a bit. Now the shoulder looks off. Well, it’s these or no pictures.

The pattern is my dress sloper I drafted myself. Only adjustment was the neckline. Two weeks ago this was an instant gratification project for me. From time to time we all need those, don’t we?

  9. It might be all about the fabric, but the placement of the print is the designer's choice. You've nailed it!
