made using the tutorial “The Eight Dollar Dress” by KBang :)
it was very easy to make, just that i had to work extra hard to streeeetttccchhh the rubberbands, as i think i measured wrong & made it too small :p still managed to finish it in around 4 hours though, and when i wear it, it’s still comfy! phew!
i put some clip (click?)-buttons on the front & back side of the dress so i can attach some straps (otherwise when i wear it as a dress, it’ll just slide down since i’m practically flat-chested :p).
when i’m wearing it as a skirt, i like putting on belt on my waist, so it’ll look like some 50’s styled skirt :)
50% cotton, 50% polyester fabric, which is, again, meant for curtains
KBang, for her great & easy to follow tutorial!
