Sewn : Daisy Shift Dress

Monday, July 28, 2014

I originally made this dress with a drop-waist but then it looked kind of funny with the loose fit and stiffer fabric so I raised the waistline up. I was sad because I really wanted to make one but it just didn't work for this one. Now it's a tad too short for my liking but oh well.

I absolutely love the fabric though. I got it from Etsy. The only thing that would have been even sweeter would have been if it were made of something other than cotton. I'm not a huge fan of cotton.. it just doesn't hang well or something, do you know what I mean? It's just too stiff for a good drape or something. I don't know, maybe that's just me.. I'm going to shut up now because I feel like I am giving way too many unsolicited opinions in this post. haha
The pattern is Simplicity 9596. I added sleeves (cap sleeve sloper) and added a lining to the bodice (used same bodice pieces, just left out the facing).

I'm always a fan of patterns with no zippers, so I was pumped about the button-down front. You can't even see the buttons in this pic but oh well. They're fabric-covered!

Overall I'm really happy with the dress. It definitely had an ugly stage where I just wanted to throw it out the window. haha but raising the waistline helped.

Well that's all I've got. Hope you are having a really great Summer! What have you been doing/making/watching/creating/enjoying? I feel like that question sounds really ingenuine just thrown in there at the end but I really do sincerely want to know! 
What has been your favorite part of Summer so far?
