Description

a friend of mine is leaving to Africa for a year and she asked me to sew a very big dress in order to protect her legs from mosquitos.
This is a Simplicity pattern I found in the Tendances Couture magazine n°5. Easy and nice to sew, and I really like the result.

Blogged her in french : http://sakikojones.fr/blog/5579-la-robe-africaine
