Katjusha - My first dress ever!!

So it’s my first dress ever , and it’s by no means perfect. The fit didn’t turn out too well, partly because I had the brilliant idea of fooling around with the pattern despite having no clue what I was doing. Ah well, c’est la vie.

I made this one out of an old bedsheet, a few scraps of white fabric I had around, and bought the ribbon from a nearby store. Oh, and I’ve yet to hem it, but hopefully, I’ll muster up the effort to do so eventually.

I’m happy with it though, the circle skirt makes it so much fun to dance and twirl in =)

Material Notes

Cotton bedsheet, white cotton, ribbon elastic
