Description

A step forward in my sewing abilities – this is my first dress without using any pattern at all! Just sketching and rectangles! I’m so impressed it turned out, gives me more confidence that I can make things that I can’t find in pattern books :)

    this looks a lot better then some of my not from patterns. Over the years I have improved on my drafting skill. i like the style. You should post a pattern for this.
