Description

I finished this dress last weekend, and I was very happy that it finally turned out quite well! First I tried to make entirely different-shaped dress from that recycled fabric, but I had to take it apart as the dress looked too strange.. But luckily I finally drafted a pattern that worked!:)

Material Notes

some synthetic fibre fabric (not sure what, as I bought the facric from flea market..)
zipper

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Hi! I don’t want to point out your faults because I think you’re amazing, but recycled does not have k in it. I know English is hard, so I thought you would be interested in this. It’s like bicycle, cycle, recycle.

    Your taste is beautiful and you make very nice clothes. I think this dress is very, very cute.

      Hi! you’re clever noticing my spelling mistake; I’m not an expert, but I’m trying my best:) sometimes I accidentally mix different languages, and that is quite interesting too.. ;D And pointing out the mistake is really okei, I just hope everyone can understand most of my writing:)

      thanks also for your lovely compliments!!

      hih thanks!:) I can try, but you could try with some basic shirt pattern and lower the neckline and add the collar. the skirt is basic A-lined skirt:)
