Southport dress

PatternSouthport dress by True Bias, i got it when it was on sale for 25% off

Fabric: Cotton Rayon rope print fabric I bought a year ago from an online fabric shop Indian Beautiful Art for around 24 dollars for 3 yards. I think I almost used the entire 3 yards because this fabric is quite narrow at 41″.

Sizing: 8 which is a 36 bust – 30 waist – 38 hips (I measure 36-30-36)

Construction Notes: Used french seams on the shoulder and side seams, chopped off 4 inches from the skirt’s length (I’m 5’3″), skipped the interfacing and sewed the buttons through both layers for a faux button opening because I was lazy. I followed the sew-along, and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow.

The Verdict: I love this dress! I’ve worn it once for dinner with friends and it was comfy and still quite cool for the Singapore weather. I can also eat a lot and just adjust the drawstring haha. I love the slit which lets me move easily but doesn’t expose a lot of skin. I’m making a knee length version of the Southport dress and I hope I will love it as much as this one. Oh and I’m thinking of making a navy rayon challis maxi like Teresa’s because it’s my favourite Southport so far.
