Summer is officially upon us! Here in Southern Missouri it is getting nice and hot. If you sew your own clothes you know that our me-made wardrobes are constantly evolving. In the process of sewing and building my wardrobe I quickly realized a lack of summer garments. I love to use patterns when I sew, but have been recently pondering the thought of pattern drafting. In its simplest form mind you. I want to be able to create a skirt or dress quickly but not in haste. I want my wardrobe to be classy, comfortable and fun!
This project has been running around in my brain for a few years. I love the halter top style tops and thought, I wonder if I could turn this into a dress. Of course I couldn’t find a pattern that I loved for this project so the DIYer in me broke free! After searching the web and of course YouTube I decided on the exact style I wanted and got to work!
So far I love how these dresses turned out and cannot wait to make more.
I used 1 1/2 yds of fabric for each dress and had very little waste.
The fabric is a lightweight poly/spandex blend ITY. I am lucky to live by a few fabric outlet stores that sell fabulous items for great prices.
I will add a step by step post as I make more of these fabulous dresses.
These dresses are so easy to put on a belt throw a cardigan on and seize the world in style and comfort! You could also make a top.
Until next time happy sewing!
