One dress multiple options
Back at it again with a green dress :D. This fabric breathes nostalgia~the beating of wooden drums and little girls *cough* me *cough* popping on stage with our waist beads and kilikili wrappers. I remember this fabric as yellow and red but I am definitely feeling the new versions cropping up.
This dress doesn’t really have a front or back per se, it can be worn both ways. Wearing it in reverse allows the option of wearing it as a summer dress. Alas as winter lingers on I have respected myself and worn a sweater with it.
Lining was important for this outfit because I believe it gave a bit more structure. I used a v-neck dress that I currently own as a pattern and extended the neckline for one side.
In hindsight, as opposed to cutting on the fold, it may have been better to cut four pieces and have a seam down the middle.
Good to note that while this dress may appear to be very straight, cutting it as such was a mistake. I had to go back in and taper the top a bit to avoid looking like I was wearing a barrel
Other than those points I think it was a simple enough dress with plenty of movement and versatility.
