The Pattern

The Dunga Dress is a straight forward pattern with a relaxed fit and easy techniques. The relaxed fit requires little or no fitting adjustments, making this a fun, casual dress. Techniques used in sewing the dress are easily mastered and suitable for a beginner sewists.

I added every pocket in the pattern to my dress. I do love a good pocket. Stitched in Wonderland does a fantastic drafting job with their pockets. They actually space and draft the pocket placement based on the size of the pattern you cut out. This creates a balanced and proportioned look for your dress. A very desirable feature to create a more custom designed creation.

A tip for making secure pockets. When you stitch your pocket on, backstitch a few times at the top of each corner to secure the pocket nicely. However, don’t stitch off the pocket on to the fabric, this would only add the stiches to one layer and would stress the fabric.

The Fabric

The jumper is made from this cute floral fabric, a Camelot Fabrics cotton poplin gifted from Minerva for their #MinervaMakers project. You can view my review on Minerva.

The cotton poplin is so fun and bright, it makes you happy just to look at it. Not to mention, the cotton is easy to sew and takes a perfect press.

Conclusion

I love this dress worn with tights and a sweater; but it would also with a cute t-shirt and sandals. We all need a well-designed, all-round dress in our closet, perfect for those times when we need to grab and go! The Dunga Dress fits the bill. I am looking forward to trying Stitched in Wonderlands Lazy Day Dungas, they look cute and comfy.
