As spring has arrived here finally (at least it seems so), I wanted a dress to enjoy the day outside! I came up with the idea of making this dress yesterday evening and I’m really proud that I managed to get it done last night so I can really wear it today. (I had cut the pattern months ago for the blouse, which I started but have not finalized yet). It is made of very old bed lining. I ommitted the sleeves and made more gathering beneath the bib and lenghtened it considerably.
(I reloaded this as I had some trouble changing the pictures to the first post! It was easier to add it as a new project.)
