You’d think that any dress I made at this time of year would be for Easter. But no, this isn’t her Easter dress. It’s an “I just felt like it” dress.
I found this great thin shirting cotton at the €1/meter store. You can’t tell in the pictures, but it is actually a soft grey and white pinstripe.
I’ve been wanting to make a simple dress with box pleats for awhile, so here you go. Of course, I couldn’t resist putting a band of pink and white polka dots at the bottom. Geez, you can’t really tell that from the pictures either, can you? Just trust me.
I may have gone a little too far with my back cut-out design. But here’s a glimpse into my brain if you want my justification: a) all that air flow is going to feel really great in a few weeks when it’s 100 degrees outside at 9 am. and b) if you can’t wear a backless dress when you’re 4, when can you?
The little line of grey at the bottom is basically piping without any piping in it. So simple to construct, but I think it adds a lot to the design.
I kinda want one for me. With a back.
