I've been making dresses lately. Generally I make either the top or the bottom and then don't know how to finish it, so I have a bin full of half-finished dresses, but here are a few I've managed to finish.

I had such difficulty with this one, I made three different skirts for it. The top should've been longer, but I'm sick of working on it so it's good enough as is:


Hooded:


Same fabric as above, different colours. This fabric is so soft and comfortable, I bought lots (it was buy 1m get 2m free!!!)


Again, top is too short, waistband too long but if I shortened the waistband now, the skirt would be shorter than I'm comfortable with. I tried a drape-y neckline for the first time--not quite drape-y enough but I think I'll know how to do it next time:


All kinds of things went wrong in the making of this one... well, at least I'm happy with the cowl neck!


Thanks for looking!

Lovely! I love the last two especially. They all remind me a bit of Anthropologie's aesthetic - really attractive!

All of those look great! I love the hoodie-top dress and the high-waisted gray skirt dress best though Smiley
