I got this dress from my grandmother some time ago. I didn’t like the fabric and color, it’s not actually my style. I didn’t think anyting could be made out of it. But one day I stumbled upon Gertie’s post about an eyelet dress. This was it ;))

Material Notes

Cotton eyelet




Garment Type
Casual, Other
Cotton, Eyelet

      Thank you very much. I guess I have no special editing skills, it’s just – it does everything for you :))

    The new dress is cute on you, but it was cute before too! It had good bones to begin with!

      Thank you ;)
      I think that the fabric is quite nice to sew, as it doesn’t need the inslide facings and lining :)

      Thank you! I have a weakness for back v-necks and just couldn’t resist making one here :)
