I really wanted a polka-dot blouse but none of the fabric shops in my area sold a suitable fabric so when I found a huge shapeless dress in the perfect fabric I knew it was meant to be. The pattern is BWOF 117 08/09 and it’s dead simple and easy to make, it needs to be worn with a belt though it’s got no shaping whatsoever. The button is from my great-grandmothers button box.
