Elasticated and Waisted

Inspired by a wardrobe of dresses, I wanted to make a simple dress with an elasticated dress. I found a great pattern idea through Craftster which was using just one piece of fabric and you essentially just sew up the sides!

I took a pattern for a bodice and a full skirt and created a pattern similar to this and cut out of some floral fabric. It took only a few hours to construct from a mock up to the finished article.

Also, this is the first dress that I worked on when I started dressmaking:

Fabric was bought from Fabric Land.
