When this green beauty arrived on my doorstep, I wondered how I’d gone this long without this shade in my technicolor closet.
In fact, I didn’t spare a second once I ripped open that box–I went straight to my dress form and started draping.
Again, let me say, it’s easier to dive in and drape when you get 6 yards of fabric in a single cut of wax print! #brokenrecord
So, obviously there’s no pattern, but the dress has a CF seam that is darted into the chest. The printed lines in the fabric give the illusion of a separate bodice, but that’s all one piece.
The back of the dress does have a bodice piece though, I guess you’d call it an inset? The back skirt pieces have a couple of pleats for swishability, and ye olde invisible zip.
All in all, a pretty easy drape, but the dress could benefit from either a little boning, or a couple more strategically placed straps, which I’ll figure out when I can tear myself away from actually WEARING it…
I’ve lost count of how many summer days I’ve worn this! Its virgin outing was a heatwave concert performance under the stars at Lincoln Center. The cotton kept me cool and happy while singing disco tunes.
You can find this beauty here. I am *this close* to grabbing another 6 yards of it…
