I have yards and yards and yards of modal and bamboo rayon knits in various colors in my stash. I originally acquired it a couple years ago when I was selling my garments retail and wholesale. Over the weekend I found Simplicity 1716, an adorable pattern that looked perfect for this super stretchy, drapey material.
I added a simple belt because my figure prefers a cinched waist on dress. Also, the fabric is fairly heavy (but some how also very light and flowy?!) and pulls down and looks weird on my back.
|Belted! It helps nip the dress in on my back waistline.|
The back neckline detail is pretty. It's a few inches of narrow elastic sewn inside to create the soft shirring.
