This dress has been in the planning stages for a while. I made it using Simplicity 3503 and the same knit fabric I used for this top here I trimmed it with a very loud polyester knit I found at my local fabric shop. My family said it was very hippy looking but I didn't let a small thing like that detract from my vision. I made the dress to a size 10 and actually didn't have to alter a thing except the length. It was extremely quick to make up despite my sewing machine taking a serious disliking to the plain red fabric. The printed fabric it liked thankfully and so it should of for what this little bit cost me. I think this may now be one of my favourite summer dresses. It is a little Christmasy looking don't you think! I am now really keen to try the sleeved version, perhaps for autumn or with shorter sleeves as a tunic over leggings.
