I made this dress from a 70's pattern from Simplicity that I bought cheap on Ebay. The fabric is some type of non stretch synthetic fabric that I bought last summer.
There is a ruffle on the bottom of the dress that makes it about 25 cm longer. Next time I will do it without the ruffle, because now it ends a decimeter below the knee. And because I'm short, it isn't as nice as you may think.
The dress is hold up by straps that you tie. Although there is elastic thread it can not be held up only by the elastic.
Normally I am a 38, but this dress in 36 do actually fit very well. I saw that the dress without the ruffle would be a great dress! I'll do that next time.
