summer dress for 17.7 inches body
Cut the blue line pattern (front and back) 2 each. Sew together (right to right) along the front line, front with front - back with back.
Sew the front and the back together (right to right),where you see the pins in the picture. Sew also the legs. Leave it inside out for the next step.
Cut the lining (pink line pattern) and sew it together along the center line (front with front and back with back. I used a very lightweight muslin.
Align the lining to the overall, front to front and sew along the pin like in the picture.
Turn the overall inside out and finish the legs seam.
cut 2 of the green line pattern, these are the suspenders. Fold each piece in half along the longer side and sew it. Now turn the tube inside out and iron it, finish the two extremities and you have your suspenders.
Sew the suspenders to the back and the patch on the front.
Here is the overall ready, feel free to be creative with fabric and accessories and remember to share your work on social media so I can see it.
