I made this dress from some fabric leftovers, but it has quickly become probably my fave dress of the moment.
I skipped the zip (because it seemed like a lot of effort) and even though it isnt stretch fabric, it still pulls over my head fine! I also cheated on the hooks and eyes, by using the ribbon with them already attatched – much easier. The fabric has a tendency to crease up quite a bit though, and the front bit was very difficult to get flat (I gave up in the end and just left it a bit wibbly), but saying that, I still like it very much!
Navy spotty cotton, white cotton and some of that ribbon with hooks and eyes on
MilasFashion for coming up with it!
