Description

I’m super excited to share this dress. It’s the first dress (apart from my wedding dress) that I designed and made fit right start to finish. It’s the first time I’ve drafted an a-line skirt, and the first time I’ve sewn successfully for someone else! This is my sister-in-law at her high school graduation. She is much tinier than I am, so I had to get used to the dress looking too small. :)

Material Notes

purple linen, small amount of polyester lining, and an invisible zip.
