Summer of Basics: Part 1

My Ebony T Shirt Dress is done and it is flipping fantastic! All in all, it is super comfortable and easy to wear. It's also a great echo of the store bought dress I've been wearing a ton! 

I made it out of a rayon blend I picked up at the local Joann store, not wanting to experiment with the knit linen fabric I've been eyeing. I followed the pattern, which was written clearly. The stitching is a combination of machine zigzag stitch and hand-sewn felled seams along the cuffs and neckband. The hand stitching happened out of frustration with my machine, which is now being serviced (thanks mom, for letting me borrow yours while mine is in the shop!) I used scraps of silk at the shoulders to reinforce those seams.

Pattern from Closet Case as part of my #summerofbasics group! 

It is also perfect for twirlling.
