Description

Time for my girlfriends brother to get married… And my girlfriend needed a dress.. So I made one! :)
Found the perfect pattern and started sewing! Took me about three weeks to get finished. Google was a good friend during this, to learn how to fold pleats and sew hems etc :)
I learned a lot from this, and both me and my girlfriend are really happy with the result!!!

    I cannot imagine a sweeter or more romantic thing for a man to do than MAKE his partner a dress. AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL!! Way to go, Ultimate Boyfriend, way to go.

    I have always loved this pattern but never had an occasion to make it for. You have made it beautifully and it looks great on your friend.
