This fabric was from my stash and I really have no idea what the fabric content is. The top layer is a very sheer fabric - possibly polyester of some sort and the lining is either a rayon or a polyblend - although I'm leaning more towards the polyblend than the rayon.
The back is secured with just a tie at the top. No need for a zipper.
To make the top, I extended the front and back bodice pieces about 12 inches and gave them a little bit of a flare on the sides.
I think it turned out quite cute! I actually had someone at work say they thought it was the nicest thing I have ever made. That's quite the compliment!!
Part of my Sew '16 Challenge was to rid myself of UFO's and this dress was one of them. I only wore the dress maybe one or two times and really didn't care for it so I ripped off the top and had plans to just convert it to a skirt. It's been hanging on the project wall for quite awhile and I can finally say, it's now finished!
Yeah! Another UFO completed!!
Total yardage for the blouse = 2.5 yards
YTD stashbustin total = 62.875 yards
Happy sewing everyone!
