In honor of July 4th, I made a dress in appropriate colors!

This dress pattern is still a huge work-in-progress. My guess-and-cut approach is just barely working Wink

The dress has casings at the neckline for a tie to thread through and an elastic waist. It's very comfortable!





Thanks for looking! Smiley

That is really pretty! It hangs nicely on you. I'm in love with the fabric. Did you need to line it, or was the fabric not super sheer? I always forget to line things until I put them on and realize you can see right through it! Either way, nicely done!

Thank you, Antidigger and krisaissosmart!

@krisaissosmart, I should have mentioned I lined it! The fabric is fairly sheer, so it's lined with an off-white muslin. Thanks for asking!
