This month I sewed up something with leftover fabric that has been sitting in my stash for two years! Fabric Mart was gracious enough to send me some extra fabric a few years ago!
I used Simplicity 8383 to sew up this gorgeous tent dress.
I cut view A in a size 6 and it was just right. Although the pattern calls for a softer knit, I chose a scuba knit. Even though it's not as drapey, it falls beautifully.
Another reason I love a scuba knit, it doesn't need any finishing on the hem.
Here is the back view. The dress pattern was shorter. I lengthened the hem by a few inches.
Love the cut outs. This is officially my 1st cold shoulder make. I replaced the neck binding with a triple cover stitch.
That's all for my DIY dress! Next, I am working on a seersucker top. It's going to be a hot summer here, so I can't wait to slip into my next creation!
Oh! Before I go, I wanted to share with you the original dresses I made with this fabric. You can see them below and here.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer. See you soon!
