LOVING IT!
Now I have an idea of what to do with some old sarongs that I have been hoarding.
Rayon might be harder to cut & sew but the drape should be nice (I'm a newbie sewer)
I like the straps both ways, with the bow and under the bust - it must cross in the back, right?
Right. I think. It ties in the back. Just like a belt. But the top front and back are identical.
I think a sarong would look great like this. And trust me I am by no means an exert sewer. If I can do this, anyone can.

Oh this is great! I love the fabric you have chosen  Grin
But I do have a question please, as a novice @ sewing, wont the fabric hang awkwardly if the selvedge isnt at the edges and along the top/bottom instead? Because I have a couple of fabrics that I woud like to use this way if it works Cheesy

Create your own selvedge by using regular fabric & finishing the edges. I know the premise is to use a finished fabric, but if you don't have one, make one by finishing the edges. Great project btw.

Totally. My selvage worked out that way because it was originally a lappa (dance skirt) but any rectangle of fabric would work.

BTW how do you spell salvedge?  Tongue

thanks for sharing this cute idea for a summer dress! I just bought this awesome roll-up curtain, it was deep red with cream embroidered flowers on the end. I HAD to buy it! Now I know what to do with it!
