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?
