Spring has sprung quickly here so I’m wearing this dress that I made at the end of last season. Though I do have a layer on underneath for a bit of warmth as the fabric is really thin.
I would say ‘simple spring dress’ but although the style is simple it turned out to be a bit tricky to make because of my mistakes. The fabric (rayon) was really slippery but I just treated it like a cotton voile or something like that so I ended up with some seams that didn’t match at the hem:
I can’t remember now what initial mistake I made on the arm holes but I ended up having to pull off the bias binding and put it back on three times! Yep. It was gaping and showing more of my arm crease than I wanted. Even now it isn’t quite right as you can tell by the singlet I’m wearing being a bit visible.
I totally fell for this print when I saw it. It is so happy and colourful and fits well into my wardrobe (ie. I have handbag, shoes, scarf, jewelry, and cardigan that go with it). Initially I was thinking about making a more complicated design but then decided that as the print is so busy and lovely that I could keep the design simple and just let the fabric be the star.
