This dress began as a stretchy double knit tunic/mini dress.
The print on this dress is what caught my eye. The tunic made me think of a tennis outfit from the 70s.
I wasn’t into the 70s mini dress, so some changes had to be made. First, I removed the top of the tunic to use for the bodice of a dress.
Then, I cut a skirt out of an extra large mens navy shirt.
I wanted to put some pockets on this dress, so I cut two pockets out of the remainder of the tunic.
Once I went to attach them though, I didn’t like both of the pockets, so I went with one pocket. I attached a button to the pocket, and all that was left was to sew the pocket to the dress, and hem the bottom.
This dress still has some 70s flare, but it’s much more wearable.
