Plaid Dress

Plaid Dress, originally uploaded by fmirela.

I made this dress for a friend of mine in Timisoara, Romania.
I hope it fits…it has a bias cut, which allows for more room and makes the fabric adjust to different bodies, following every curve.
Although plaid fabrics are considered to make one look bigger, the bias cut actually does create a slimmer figure.

This comfortable cotton plaid bias dress is threaded like a corset with a satin ribbon in the back, and around the waist line. The same olive green satin ribbon is used for the straps, gathering the top, ending with a knot in the front.
Triangular insertions of fabric at the bottom add amplitude to the dress, creating an uneven hem, as well as an interesting game of plaid lines.

I really like it so I plan on sewing another in the same fabric, but in a turquoise color.

Daniela, I hope this fits you!
