One last swing...

... for the descending summer. This is the swing dress I made last week. I think it will be the last for some time now...
This time I crossed the straps in the back and I gathered the front bodice. Both were very easy operations. The front gathering:

1. Sew a small fabric tube.
2. Measure the middle of the front bust piece and knot the fabric tube around it.
3. Stitch them together from the inside.

Also the skirt is less circular this time.







The straps in the front:


The straps in the back are made long long, crossed and then stitched on the outer side of the bodice. The extra length makes for a small bow.
