I would never have guessed at any flaws; you did a great job!

What a nice dress and great use of marred fabric. Got to love that!

Great dress for this summer heat.

To draft my initial pattern, I folded a tank top in half matching the side seams and then traced around the outside. Then I widened the shoulders (adding more on the neck side than the sleeve side) and drew more or less straight down past the hips to the length I wanted. I think I might have measured the sideseam of an existing long dress to get the length, or just held the tape-measure beside me.

My mother would love that dress. It looks perfect for Florida.

A perfect dress for those hot summer days. What method did you use for your draft?
