Happy Hippiedress

Added Aug 21, 2013

Heerhugowaard, N...






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.

Material Notes

Lightweight , somewhat sheer cotton curtain fabric.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Romantic

      It has an elastic waist so it is indeed comfortable.

      No doubt that they liked it, that’s why they were staring at you! They were wondering where you bought it!

      The fabric is great. I hope I don’t run into someone who has used it as curtains because that what it’s meant to be for.
