I love dresses. and Sewing without patterns. So i combined my loves into one work of... sewing goodness.
I went on an Epic bus adventure to Spotlight for fabric for pants for my friend. and also tulle for tutus.
And i came away with this striped stuff which I've seen and loved and it was like $4 a meter so I had to have it.
I kind of measured across the boobs and made up where to put darts and gathered in the middle.
Added a black edge. + waistband to define..
Aaaand straps.
The back has elastic at the top. and pleats when it attatches to the waist band. It has a short side zipper in navy, because i couldn't find black.

Ummm... And it's all serged and hemmed good.
