Chicago, United ...
I made this from a $1.99 wrap I bought from the Goodwill. The dress has two extra seams because the wrap wasn’t wide enough but luckily, since the dress has a gathered look to it, they’re hard to see.
I look like a space cadet. . . . . .
The dress is super easy to make but my machine kinda hated the fabric. It’s a light nylon-like fabric that would get sucked into the machine. I broke my first needle!
Ah well, on the plus side it doesn’t fray. For more on this project, visit the post on my blog.
Thanks apfelbluete for posting the pattern!
