Description

This dress was made with just 2 meters of 110cm fabric! I did have to muck around alot with it as I didn’t add the seam allowance before I cut it!! I was worried it was going to be far too small so I added hand made loops and buttons to give extra space at the center front. I also added a ruffle to the hem to make it longer. I’m pretty happy with the outcome. I feel like going to the museum in this dress.

Material Notes

100 % cotton Voile (Tessuti Melbourne City)

      Thankyou. I think the dress really shows off this print. I’m very happy with it. I might have to get a few crochet tips from you by the looks of it.

      Thank you. I’ve been hanging onto the fabric for a while. It actually looks better than what I expected it would. :)

      Thank you.the pattern was hard to follow but now I’ve worked it out Im sure I’ll use it again. The pattern says to use chiffon but my fabric is a lightweight cotton which worked perfectly.
