Make My Week #40 - October Dress

At the beginning of the year one of my goals was to make myself a piece of clothing every month this year.

Recently I had my sister over to go through my fabric stash and help me out with re-visiting fabrics (another goal this year was to buy less fabric and use the stuff I actually have!).

So I have, finally, whipped up this very, very simple dress. Literally 2 pieces of fabric and some bias binding from the stash and the dress is done.

I love this fabric it is super stretchy and quite heavy. I bought the fabric for $4.99 from an op shop about 3 years ago. There was loads of it I still have a least half a metre left.

Another perfect summer dress for the days where the shaving regimen has gone out the window (happens to me anyway!).

I made this dress from start to finish in about 1.5 hours - I can't believe it's taken 3 years to get around to it.

Love it! not too 'clingy' which is what I hate about some materials for maxi's
looks awesome!

Love the dress & the fabric (and well done on that regimen issue)

Very elegant. I like the full length look, and the belt is a great addition.
