I sewed this very simple dress for myself before we went on holiday. ( I know it’s december allready…but I forgot to post this one 😛 ) Great to throw over your bikini.
First I traced a dress I liked and which was suitable for this kind of dress.
I didn’t trace the sleeves but drew them myself. Very simple. They are a bit wide so you need to take a very thin or smooth fabric. Which I didnt…
You can use a tape or a plate to draw the curves. For the neckline I measured te dress and used the measuring tape to draw this.
Easy! Now you have the front and back pattern.
Next time I would draw the top line of the sleeves lower at the end. So the sleeves become a bit narrower.
Cut the fabric and sew the sides an top of the sleeves together.
I used bias tape to finish the neckline and sleeves. This looks realy tight 😉 You can also use a contrast color wich I like… but I allready had this one.
First you sew the biastape on the right side of the fabcric and then you turn it around to the inside. Make sure you don’t see any bias tape on the front. Iron , pin and sew. Very easy and it looks pretty.
Finish the bottom and the job is done!
And here I’am showing of the dress… Now I know why I don’t blog about he stuff I make for myself 😉
