I’m not posting this on March 2nd to be a show-off. Really. I am heading out on a vacation soon and will have a crazy busy March when I get back. Plus, I wanted this dress for the cruise. I guess I’m into strappy knit dresses lately. They seem to be my go-to cruise wear. You can wear them with sandals or tennis shoes for running around and touring or put heels on and you’re good for dinner.
The fabric is some Fabric Mart fabric that I also used on this Jalie top. I really like it and it sews like a dream. Unfortunately, it’s sold out. Waaahhhh!
Same picture but with the drape drawn in. It’s an interesting dress to put together. It made me scratch my head many times. It’s actually a cute, simple dress with “bust flaps”. Bust wings? Boob wings? Anyway. my point is, there is a cute dress under the “wings” if you just want that too.
Here it is a bit closer so you can see the draping. My string turned out enormously loooong. I am going to cut them.
There is a drapey panel on the front and the back.
I made my standard size 34, no alterations. Well, except the hem. I never add an allowance and they are always plenty long.
Like I said, cute little dress under the “wings”. See how long the strings are? Sheesh. You also have to make sure those strings are tight. They run through a casing and that is what holds the whole dress up!!
Back draped piece. The straps look crooked. They aren’t, I measured. Hmmmmmmmmm . . .
What are you guys sewing?? I have been seeing tons of February Burdas pop up! Keep it up ladies!! I have another cruise wear outfit coming in a day or two. It’s pretty bright!!!
