i was pretty stoked to find this fabric in the clearance aisle- $3 a yard! i have a penchant for hawaiian prints and you don’t often see a plumeria print. it’s a nice mid-weight cotton jersey. i used this pattern to make the one-shoulder dress last summer and was happy with the result so i thought i’d try one of the other versions. the pattern calls for a side zipper, but since i was using the jersey i just sewed it up both sides- it pulls on over my head easily. i also made it a little longer than the pattern shows. (check out the legs on those ladies on the envelope! those are some long-limbed women.) sewing the shoulder straps onto the plastic rings was a bit of a pain, there wasn’t much fabric to work with there. next time i’ll cut a little extra on the top of the bodice so it’s not so hard to wrap around the rings. the dress is super comfy…i think it will be a summer favorite.
