the easy tube dress

I bought this fabric a few months ago and finally today is a good day to start working on it.

firstly it is a public holiday meaning I do not have to work. bravo. secondly, I woke up early, had a simple breakfast and went for a good walk at the sky garden. the fresh sea air is doing me good. thirdly, I found a mint radio clock abandoned by a resident. it is perfect for my masterbedroom!

the good things must go on! here is the fabric I bought.

I took DD’s pit to pit measurement and multiplied by 2.5. as she wanted a dress that covers her knee cap, I added about 9 inches to cater for the elastic top and the waist. after pinning, it looks like this

I sewed the sides, the tubings for the elastic etc and it has taken shape

DD fitted well but her daddy requested 2 shoulder straps to be added.
