Cool Comfort

I needed a loose, comfortable dress that wouldn't crush before I went to hospital, so I whipped up this dress and having already worn it about 3 times in a week. It is so easy.
I used the Tessuti Gabby Dress pattern. I upgraded the pattern about 1 size, it is very loose fitting anyway, I probably wouldn't upgrade again when using stretch. 

The fabric I bought at Cabramatta a few years ago. I think you would call it a slinky knit ( but I'm not sure). It was easy to sew and in hot humid weather at the moment its fabulous to wear. The shape is so comfortable and the fabric drapes really well, I could live in these over summer. I will definitely be making this again. Its a great way to start using fabrics in my stash. I know this is not the most flattering shape but it is SO comfortable.
