Description

I love my baby sister. I really do…except when she goes shopping in my wardrobe…. I hate when she does that, and i really don’t understand why, as i’m a size 18 and she’s an 8! But it doesn’t stop her from taking my clothes.

Sooooo, I’ve decided to make her a summer dress (for starters).
She found the fabric at her Grandma’s and i just bought a strapless dress pattern form the early 90’s on Ebay (fist time ever, so happy ^^).
The fabric used to be a full flare round skirt, with the same fabric for lining.

I kept the top of the pattern and one of the two skirt and after lots of trouble with the bust, tadaaaam……….

She’s pretty happy with it, so i hope she won’t go near my wardrobe anymore ^^

Material Notes

-old skirt
-leftovers for trousers (for the bust lining)
-a little sister

    haha! Love it. I have some bad news though. Considering I’m also a “little sister” I can tell you that won’t stop her from shopping in your closet lol. :)
