Description

This was one of my daughters Easter dress. I am in LOVE with Ankara fabrics or Dutch wax fabric right now. Also mixed patterns with contrasting colors. I did not have access to these two fabric last minute, so I rumage through my fabric stash to try and fake the look I was going for. This was the best I could do on short notice. She wanted me to make her a dress in a 50’s style, so I used an easy New Look pattern A6208 and changed it a bit.
She made her own headband
