Description

Based on the Charlie pattern, I made this from a polyester dress I wore at Burning Man a few years ago. I was thinking of selling it on Etsy, but I think this one is going to be personal :) Note the pockets… those were from the original dress.

Material Notes

vintage polyester dress, with some Playa karma

    This is the coolest Charlie I’ve seen so far. That funky fabric was put to excellent use.

    I love it! Did you use bias trim or elastic?
