Seeing Double

I was so thrilled with my first dress that i immediately made another. this time i used stripey rayon jersey from fabric.com. i was out of clear elastic so i cut binding strips for the neckline and armholes. i also lowered the armholes by 1 inch.

this dress is lighter weight and more comfortable to wear than the ITY jersey version. it pretty much feels like wearing a nightgown (but in a good way). the rayon jersey does cling to itself a little bit as you can see on the side seams, but not in an unbearable way.

now i'm just debating whether i should sew this dress one more time or give another pattern a try. i'm sure that these 2 dresses will get regular wear in my summer rotation.

I say go for a third! I never think I can pull off a maxi, but it does look oh, so comfortable.
