The fabric for this dress came from an old bed-sheet/tablecloth set that my grandma made in the 80’s. She gave the fabric to me in hopes of me doing something “productive” with it. So I made a dress. :)
I started off with a pattern that I intended to tweak a bit, but after cutting out all the pieces for the smallest size I realized that it was still WAY too big. The pattern I cut was a size 6, and I’m a 0, so I had to take it in a lot until it fit my petite frame. I’m quite pleased with my dress.
Grammy was proud… ;)
