This is my " as cheap as it gets!" dress. Op shop pattern 50c, fabric free. - found at hard rubbish! Zip was the most expensive part at $1.10 from the fabric shop on Sydney road opposite Super Cheap fabrics ( I don't go there often and can never remember the name, I know the sign is orange and white!
This was really a wearable muslin, I had to do a couple of joins in the back. And it was my practise run to try inseam pockets. ( 3 dresses in now I am getting better each time!)
The neckline didn't quite sit right, so I made 2 little tucks and called it a design feature!
Pattern is an older New Look "easy" number 6602. I cut and redrafted (and have since redrafted again, still tweaking the shape a little more) based on the lovely shift dress I picked up at the fabric restash last year (and have lived in, thank you mystery sewist who made it!).
