Description

This is a dress (see here ) I made in my early sewing day. I really liked it but I still felt costumed in it so I re-fashioned it. I lengthened it with some white cotton poplin, changed the straps and made these wider and added a white belt with a bow on the side! I prefer it now.

Material Notes

previously made dress in lavender blue cotton, white cotton poplin, snaps and interfacing

      I wasn’t sure it worked, since both colours are so pale. Thank you!
