summer dress with open back
I made my own pattern from a dress I already have. 1st time! I'd like to have millions of this dress ^^ .

I didn't want to tear apart my beloved dress, so making the perfect pattern was kind of difficult.

Next time I will only use jersey, because that fits better. As you can see, I had trouble with the sleeves.

Nevertheless, I'm very proud of it! Hope you like it too.

Thank you ^^
I just asked my boyfriend for this fantastic manual of sewing techniques. I hope he'll buy it for X-mas. All about learning indeed. ;)
After reading your posts I have to admit that maybe this little dress doesn't really look like a summer dress. It is a summer dress because of the thin fabric. I should have used jersey though, because that stretches and this fabric doesn't. Unfortunately I can't wear the dress, but I will make one that will.

I agree with Pinocchio but the sleeves looks fine to me. You did a great job..Its more than I can say. Im working on my first jacket and everything is great but the sleeves and idk if i have enough fabric to fix it..all about learning! I love the dress though

you say you have a problem with the sleeves? Just take them off then, the dress would look great without them. It would look like a summer dress Happy
