A striped sundress inspired by New York 1402
I don't have this pattern, I only used it for inspiration, since I love sundresses and love blue and white stripes. This is the first pattern I've made with cups for the breasts and they could have been a little larger and gone a bit higher up. I'm pretty satisfied with them though. As you can see I managed to put the stripes in the opposite way from the pattern image, but at least they match. Everywhere. I bought the shoes and hairnet on eBay.
Here's another photo, where I'm not wearing the hairnet, which I guess is more pleasing to the modern eye. And a view from the back.
