I’m still in love with dresses and I found this dress from Merrick’s Art’s stash of DIY projects.
The inspiration for this look.
I originally found this on Pinterest and have admired this from afar and finally got the nerve to try it.
To make this dress, I followed Merrick’s instructions listed on her post. The pictorial is pretty self explanatory.
I used the following materials:
- Double knit fabric
- V9075 bodice front/side front pieces, cut the front neckline slightly lower than the back & added 34′ to the length (back neckline to end of dress)
- Self drafted the neck band, using reduced measurements from the outer neckline. I ball-parked this to a size that was comfortable and looked flattering.
- V9075 sleeve + 5′ to the length
I love how this double knit sews! To change it up, I decided to use the wrong side as the right side. I really liked the camo green on the wrong side vs the ribbed right side of this fabric.
I think this dress is perfect for cooler weather as well. I can’t wait to pair this up with maybe some tights or with some neutral flats for work.Call this the all-purpose-dress! Click To Tweet
