Sometimes my fabric calls out to me. It could be a random piece that needs a friend to make something fabulous such as my last post. Sometimes it’s a piece of fabric that I’ve had for a super long time that decides it’s time has come to be made into something fabulous.
A tangerine knit whispered to me and said a tshirt dress it shall become. I was working on another dress at the time but decided I could make them concurrently. It’s does get tiring to work on one project throughout the day.
I used the Briar tee pattern by Megan Nielsen as my base. I raised the neckline to match my black crop version. I cut the length as far as I could with the fabric I had left. By the time I got to the sleeves I didn’t have the length I wanted. I had to add a bit to the length so each has a small band at the end.
There’s quite a bit of fabric pooling above my butt in this pic. I must have been standing weird. It doesn’t normally do that. If I make another dress like this, I would like to add a bit more swing but it could also be taken in a bit in the back do there’s not so much fabric there.
I hurriedly finished this dress to wear to a friend’s birthday party at the end of March. The weather was warm so I needed something light and comfortable. This dress was perfect and I received a few compliments. At least, I recall that I did. I had a really good time *glug glug glug*
I’ve been searching my closet more and more for dresses when I get ready in the morning. This dress is so ridiculously comfortable. I think it might be a good idea to throw a few more of these in there. Maybe change up the neckline and sleeves; possibly do pockets!
