Her African dress

Added Sep 5, 2012

by saki

Brussels, Belgium






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 :




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Bohemian, Classic, Evening Wear
Cotton, Knits/Jersey
