I got 4.85 meters of Lecien “My Folklore” in a sale bin and I KNEW I had to make some kind of prairie, dirndl-like maxi dress (I had enough fabric! HURRAY!) I trimmed the front with cotton lace, satin bias tape and piping, while the back was trimmed with white piping only.
The pattern was drafter by me from my own sloper. I was inspired by the dirndl patterns on Burda.
I JUST finished this dress and it’s already dark. I will post better pictures soon.
