I made this dress from a curtain fabric I bought for only 3 euros. It was quite a large piece of fabric so I decided to make a maxidress out of it. I earlier made two blouses with this neckline I drafted and with the second try I was really happy with it so I used this same neckline for this dress. ( I will post the blouses later)
It was an easy and quick project. I’ve lined the top and placed a knee length underskirt. I used the original hem of the fabric because it has lead in it, it falls nicely into place.
Lightweight , somewhat sheer cotton curtain fabric.
