My grand mother gave me this beautiful fabric and I chose a suiting pattern, and now it looks like an asian inspired dress.
I used a New look pattern (6000), the dress looks great but I didn’t like the instructions so I added some seams so it’s a little modified. Otherwise, it was a very easy dress to make but I did quite a lot sewing by hand.
I very pleased with the outcome, I think my grand mother will be proud!
