Look at how adorable this is! That is if it is okay to say so myself!
This is an easy to sew dress and I literally sewed it up in less than two hours.
It is super, duper short so I doubt I will wear this as a dress but more of a tunic. Have you heard that rule, no mini skirts after 35? I am way over that year!
I knew this would be short but with my limited amount of fabric, this was all the longer I could make it.
I love how this fits at the shoulders and bust and then just flows.
This gorgeous fabric is from Stof. It is 94% cotton and 6% lycra. It stitches up beautifully!
I reinforced those little areas where the sleeve attaches to the arm using a small piece of stay tape.
Look how smooth that upper back is along with the sleeves and upper arm.
I recently promised a tutorial on how I stabilize the neckline...well here it is!
I use ordinary Dritz stay tape. I can easily find this at JoAnns. You can see where I stitched it on with it barely extending over the seam allowance.
I use about every landmark I can on my machine or feet. I line up the edge of the stay tape with a part of my presser foot. After this step, I apply the neckband as usual. The little edge of the stay tape is covered by the neckband.
I had a blast making this dress/tunic! It is well drafted and I can see making another view in the near future!
Thanks for reading!
