Just because I
need want a new dress.
Since I wanted something new really quickly, I had to use a simple pattern. I quickly decided on the neckline I want and made use of my multi-pattern (which is not in a very pristine condition). That saves time on drafting a brand new pattern. This is the first time making a V-neck and I’m mightily pleased with how it turned out. The dimensions are perfect. The skirt is a straightforward rectangle gathered skirt which I’ve made many times.
You can try Burda’s Tank Dress or any other pattern with a desired neckline and a gathered skirt.
The print says it all. I’m wearing my hobby!!! Walking the talk :) I got it from a local craft store, and it didn’t come cheap. I assumed that it is more for quilting and crafting rather than dress-making, hence the price (more than SGD10/m). Still, I can’t resist such a pretty piece of cotton.
This is one of the fastest and neatest dress that I’ve made so far. My only complain is the uneven interfacing. It was done in a rush, my bad, and the first time with a V-neck. I will try harder next time!
