Easy Breezy Shift Dress - Simplicity 2938 Revisited
After finishing S2692, I felt energized to finish another summer dress. This is a repeat of S2938 made two years ago. This time, I made my usual FBA, no back darts, and added a belt.
I followed the Threads tutorial for making your own bias tape.
Note on the shoes - I really wanted some of those new strappy galdiator sandals to wear with this dress, but didn't find the "right" pair for the "right" price.
The fabric is from JoAnn's which I got on sale for about six bucks per yard. It's floaty, soft with some gloss. I really like to colors in the print and the feel of this fabric.
This dress is easy and a great wardrobe builder. I may make one more this summer.
Coming soon: More dresses, of course; but I really need to finish up the tops and pants that already cut and ready to sew.
