My son Maben is so sweet, during the creation of this dress, I tried it on and he gasped. He looked at me and said, "Mommy, you're a princess!" I melted. He then asked me where my castle was and I told him our house was our castle...he disagrees.
This is only the second dress I have ever sewn...so be nice. I took a jersey tank top that was not long enough for my super long torso, cut off part of it and sewed the skirt (which I did all the construction on) to it. I added a zipper in the back. I sewed in a piece of elastic around the waist, to reduce the amount of weight on the jersey so it wouldn't stretch out too badly. I love the fabric and fairly satisfied with the finished product. What do you think?
The fabric is Kaffe Fassett Lake Blossoms Red. I purchased mine from fabric.com and have wanted to make a dress or skirt with it ever since I first laid eyes on it. (Not an affiliate link, just where I bought mine)
