I just finished this dress this morning. I'm in love with it already! I've had this fabric for about a year and I saw a cute dress that inspired me to make it. My first intention was to make a straight tubetop-like top with straps made of braided fabric, but after hours of frustration and puckering of the fabric, I just took a shirt out of my closet and traced the top half to use for my dress. I wasn't intending for it to look exactly like the original picture, but it looks pretty darn close with the new top. I didn't use a pattern aside from the shirt.


The black waistband is removable. I thought it complemented the dress and added a little somethin' to an otherwise all one color dress.

It reminds me of an Ella Moss dress.  Good job!  And it looks comfy, too, which is always a plus.   Smiley

I love that dress.  It looks versatile, like you could get away with wearing it to the grocery storeand then to church and then to a BBQ.  It's great, and it looks really comfortable.
