I made this two years ago for a baptism ceremony (in which I was the godmother of the child). It is a very simple dress (I was not at a sewing mood this period of time) but it has a draped piece at the front which adds interest and volume to the bust area.
As usual I made a top and a skirt of the same fabric to give the look of a dress. I'm not so sure that this colors looks nice on me....but it's much better when I pair it with more vibrant colors such as purple:
This is made of strech gabardine. It has no zipper or any kind of fastening, I prefer to have a little hard time wearing the dress than to sew by hand the invisible zipper (I can't sew it with my sewing machine ). Plus I live in a place of world where it's very difficult to find sewing notions, even sewing thread sometimes, so I didn't want to go out searching red zipper only to come back home with empty hands ) The bodice has gussets which gave me a really hard time. Except of this the dress was a very easy and fast project.
I made this skirt of yellow denim fabric which was not a good choice: as I moove or walk the double pleat opens and the thick fabric looks a bit weird. I would like to try this design in a more soft fabric and see what happens.
