This is the first dress I’ve ever sewn. The under dress is made from my fiance’s old T shirts. Too bad it looks moo-moo ish. I’ll still wear it haha.

Material Notes

Linens and cotton

    it came out too big so I cut it up and made purses for my mom and grandma. It was a good learning experience though.

    Thanks everyone :) The old t shirt thing did make it pretty comfy. Luckily my guy has a closet full of huge promotional tees just waiting for me to hack up and sew back together.

    I think your dress looks retro. First dress ever sewn. Wow! Looks great.
