I love this dress. I saw it on etsy over a month ago and fell in love with it. The only reason I didn't buy it is because it was a little short for me. My knees are not my best feature and wearing something above the knee makes me feel self conscious. So, I emailed to see if the seller would do a custom order for me, only slightly longer. It took a while for her to come back with the answer, sorry no, too busy. AAAAaaaargh. This is the dress that I really wanted for one of the parties we're planning for my significant birthday this year.
Your advice is needed. So many of you are much better sewers than me, but I don't think making this is much of a stretch. The body to me looks just like a tube, gathered slightly with a folded band around the top, probably a hidden zip down the side. The strap I can figure out too and the flowers, well I guess they'll just take practice. Questions I'm looking to be answered more than others, I think I'll try with a dummy go - do I make it out of the same weight of fabric? Also, this looks quite light and sheer to me, but the listing only said cotton - any ideas on what I should use? Any ideas, tips or comments gratefully received.
