 This dress is made from a bamboo knit.  It is sooo soft; just feel how soft it is!  Oh wait... you can't  Cheesy

It was pretty quick to make.  Next time I will make a fuller skirt. I am hoping to (re)acquire a dress form, which will make the bust/top half much easier!

I highly recommend bamboo knit! It is so comfy, seems breathable, washes well and... did I mention, it is sooo soft!

So, here it is:


(note to self, next time wear with the Bridget Jones style undies, lol)
Anyway, I still need to hem it, but I wore it today and my beloved was able to snap a few pictures despite the icky weather...


Next time, I will also make the straps wider.  I was aiming for wider... but... yeah.


Crazy face/no-neck.  Oh well. I like the back... Simple, but flattering  Smiley

So... happy sewing!  Anyone else had some fun with bamboo?

ps. Anyone from Albuquerque? Send me a message, if you have a few minutes! I am thinking of moving that way and would love to hear your thoughts.

I LOVE bamboo knit! I discovered some bamboo jersey that looks a lot like yours in a store in Toronto, and I've wanted to use nothing but since.

I am with you on that.  It is so luxurious! I am slowly working at making my whole non-work wardrobe out of the stuff  Smiley
