After trying a chevron dress on at Target and deciding I could make a better dress using stuff I already had lying around, I made this dress. I am so happy with how it came out.
I drafted the pattern and painted the stripes myself, which was really fun and came out better than I really expected it to. I've had a lot of luck painting stripes on fabric before, I think because using masking tape always makes nice clean lines with no bleeding (as opposed to stenciling, which I've had hit or miss experiences with.) Has anyone else painted stripes on fabric before? It's so nice to have so much control over the colors when you do.
