a happy find....



one of my favorite dresses
is just a simple tank dress with drawstring straps.

this weekend i was cleaning out some old magazines
and was looking through the first issue of blueprint
....no, i did not get rid of it....
....i am getting rid of a bunch of magazines
but i have to keep the blueprints!
anyway, i found this easy dress
a tank dress with drawstring straps....
the article said that the instructions were on line
they weren't where the magazine said they would be
....but i did find them at martha stewart.com....

2 yards of fabric....one yard of cord....11 seams
totally worth a try :)

after going through the last 10 years of msl, i was just looking through those magazines, too. i really loved that darn magazine and have kept them all! i think you'll do a great job with the dress!

oh, thank you for this link, i have tried to make a dress like this without using a pattern, and was unsuccesful, but now with a pattern to go to, new possibilities arise :)
