The Violet Flounce Dress & Top is a great summer sew. The garment is made from knit fabric with a loose fit providing ultimate comfort for the wearer. The four spaghetti straps make an otherwise ordinary back more intricate. And the optional front flounce gives a nice delicate detail. Since the garment uses a facing, it makes for a quick sew that doesn’t use much fabric. Plus, since there is a bust adjustment option included in the pattern, no adjustment is needed even if you wear a larger cup size!
Sewing Level: Confident Beginner
Sizes: Ladies 0-20 with Bust Adjustment
This is a quick project that makes a fun dress. The trickiest part is getting the spaghetti straps to be perfect. I made this for my 19 year old from a performance athletic fabric, double knit. The stretch was a little greater than recommended, but the body of fabric made it hold up well. It's worth testing different edging finishes.
