An easy t-shirt dress to conquer the heat…The pattern is self-drafted, used previously here. The only change I made was adding breast darts, to give it a bit more shape. Still, it has to be worn with a belt, as it looks like a sack otherwise. I had hardly enough fabric for it (it was a remnant), so I omitted the set-in sleeves and made little kimono sleeves instead. I also added two mother-of-pearl buttons at the neckline, simply for decorative reasons. I love the fabric! It is slightly sheer (going to wear a nude bra underneath it next time) and wrinkles easily. But it has a very cool, slightly mysterious, symmetrical border print to make up for that – like the lagoon at night. And am I the only one seeing Wolverine’s claws in the first picture?…  It wasn’t even a meter but I still managed to squeeze this dress out. I made it in one evening, despite the french seams and hand-sewn hem. A very quick make and it has served me well (and several times) so far.
