fishy dress!

Added Sep 15, 2009

Sydney, Australia






i bought this material, apparently it’s a vintage bedsheet.. but anyway, absolutely fell in love with it and i’ve made this dress :) which im quite happy with!

i got the idea from one of maryy’s dresses with the ruffles on the sleeves. i used jj’s sloper bodice pattern for the top bit and the skirt was just some rectangles

then i discovered how easy it was to do buttons with a sewing machine, hence the button up back :)

kinda wish i had yellow or bright orange buttons..i might go out and buy some and replace the pink ones

anyway this was super fun and easy to make and i think its kinda i want a yellow jacket to go with it..ahhhh spring <3

Material Notes

light cotton, buttons




Garment Type

    I absolutely love this. At first I thought the buttons were on the front, but when I looked at the other pictures I realized they were on the back, which is so perfect! I’ve recently become obsessed with things that button up the back and this is no exception.
