When I saw this tutorial for a museum tunic dress at Anna Maria Horner's web site, I decided to give it a try. I only had elastic thread on hand instead of the elastic - and let me tell you - I need work on the elastic thread! I had a really hard time with it and made a belt for it instead.
Super simple dress, though, and easy to adapt - mine does not have as deep of a "v" in the front or back and worked well over a tank top. It was really comfortable, too. I think it will work well with tights and a cardigan in the fall/winter.
I used some of the fabric from the Cherish Nature line by Moda.
OK - if you have tips on using elastic thread, send them my way...I am not sure I will be trying it again in the very near future, though!
