Drape Dress


This is a halter dress I designed from a inexpensive knit fashion fabric that I got a while back.  I liked the fabric at the store but when I got home the pattern looked a little too busy for me.....like all over the place.  I thought I could use the fabric for my toiles but this is really a stretch fabric so I started to drape, measure & pin the fabric & this is what I got.  I used my serger and my sewing machine for the back halter seam & side seams.  I made a little bustle at the back skirt part because the skirt looked rather plain in style on its own.


The front is a cowl style & fits rather comfortably.  I have been wearing this around the house & think it will be perfect when we go on vacation as I can roll this up in a small suitcase for travel.

Sew you later!
