Cotton dots




This dress is a more casual version of the shibori silk dress I posted recently. Bias cut, drop waist, boat neck. It’s a very soft double cotton gauze. The fabric was wider, so there was no need for a yoke and the skirt is slightly longer and cut straight across. I sort of wish I’d done a yoke anyway, since it makes a cleaner neckline. Instead I used my serger’s handkerchief edge, which looks ok but needed a lot of pressing to lay flat. As a dress I plan on wearing to work, it had to have a pocket. The drop waist makes it difficult to do in seam pockets, since the dress is pretty fitted at the point where pockets should go. So instead I sewed down one pleated patch pocket.
