SWAP Sewing: Crossover Dress

This dress is modified from Jalie 2804, the empire crossover top pattern.  I changed the pattern to add a skirt below the empire seam, and made a simple pullover style dress.  The neckline is trimmed with some picot edge elastic, but I didn’t have enough to trim the armholes.  I like that the trim emphasizes the crossover.  After the initial try-on, I also added a bit of elastic at the empire seam to provide some subtle shaping and help with the fit.  The fabric for this dress is a nice, thick cotton french terry, which makes it perfect to throw on over a swimsuit on the way out for a day at the pool.
