This radiant red wax block printed fabric is simply gorgeous. At least to me 🙂 It seems like it was just designed to make shining dresses from it. So this is exactly what I did.
As the pattern of the fabric is so beautiful and perfect by itself I decided to sew a very simple dress letting the pattern come into its own without to much bric-a-brac.
To make it comfortable I added two pockets, placed in the seam, where they are perfectly hidden.
At the waist I used a ruffle tape that creates littles pleats while the dress stays flexible. On the right side of the dress the seam of the ruffle tape is only slightly visible.
As the fabric itself isn’t stretchy at all, it was necessary to cut little triangles into the seam allowance before folding it in and sewing the seams of the neckline and the armholes. But with that little trick it worked really well.
So, ready for summer 🙂
