This was my first sewing project. It is a dress I have sewn last year as a Christmas present for my friend (who don´t wants to be identified :).
I had a basic pattern from “Schnittquelle” (I think it is called Kassak Punjab: http://de.dawanda.com/product/52576619-Schnittmuster-Kassak-Punjab-08-27 ) and changed nearly everything…
At the end I added a elastic band to make the dress more like a balloon dress. Since it was my first project, it is not perfect, but my friend loves it :).
Any critique is welcome :). Thank you :).
