Dress No. 2: Vintage Style Cotton and Ribbed Knit
Here is my second project and my first dress! I did not follow any pattern for this one, I just sort of winged it, and I am semi-happy with the results. I think there is still some tweaking that could be done to make it wear a bit better. I think I need to hand-stitch the sash into place in a few spots so that it stays in the right spot, and the top needs some tweaking so that I’m not flashing the whole world every time I bend over. Overall, I do like the style and it is very comfy.
I’m not sure I’m in love with the colors, though. They are kind of fall-ish and from a distance the top colors blend together and the resulting effect is a little too close to my skin tone. I do like the ribbed knit feel and color, so my first dress dress may end up chopped up and made into a skirt!
