A very comfortable and, with only 3 seams a very easy-to-make dress.
It’s really just a rectangle, tapered a little at the waist and hem. There are two seams at the shoulders and, because it’s folded over at one side, there’s only one side seam. Super easy. Looks a bit shapeless without a belt but I didn’t want to mess with the design on the fabric.
For me, this dress is all about the print and is inspired by my parents and their kitschy take on home-decorating. When I was younger, my parents covered one of the walls in their living room in plant life themed wallpaper. I think my sister and I refered to it as a “jungle” and this fabric reminds me of that.
You have no idea how many nettles are just lurking in the background of this picture. Evil things. I can’t even THINK about going outside without getting stung by them. Stinging plants and harmless spiders? This country is doing things back-to-front.
Speaking of which, I cut the back neckline a little higher so I can wear it turn it round and get away with wearing it to work.
