Today's garment was made using the R pattern from the Sweet Dress Book and I must say it allows for one of the quickest and most gratifying sewing projects evah! I kept the alterations from the Lucky chance top but finally decided to make the dress length version seeing how many dresses I wear these days. I used amazingly soft and beautiful denim blue fabric -turns out it is Tencel- with white polysomething fabric. I'm also happy that I could use the thin striped trim you can see above the sweetheart detail because it had been in my stash for years and I was longing to find a nice project for it :) As usual I finished the neckline and armholes with bias tape and I machine sewed a simple 1" folded hem. All in all it took me around 2 hours to trace, cut, sew and finish the dress so you know this pattern is a keeper!
I wore it with a purchased belt but I'm thinking about making a matching sash out of the remaining tencel fabric.
