I'm getting ready for June's Frock by Friday™. I was having difficulty finding a 'free pattern'. The Tara pattern that Very Purple Person (see image below) had used to make a LOVELY flowy summer frock is not free but it's only $2.50 from Burdastyle. It's a blouse but she turned it into a dress and I'm sure its very simple to do by just lengthening the bottom, which I would show you how to do.
I think this is a great starter dress for someone who hasn't sewn on before because I'll be using a knit material which doesn't require as much sewing. You can leave the edges raw if you so choose. You don't have to use a knit material for the dress but if you do it will be faster. ONE CAVEAT, if you use a knit material you MUST get a stretch needle for your machine. They sell them at almost any fabric or sewing store. It's basically just a thinner, sharper needle.
I wasn't sure if we should start this on Monday or the Monday after.
What do you think? Are you in?
