I’ve wanted to have a simple and easy white summer dress for warm and bright summer days for a long time – In these hot days you just want something nice you can slip into instead of dressing into it. I found an old slihtly sheer sheet and thought it would be perfect for my light and loose summerdress.
It was really fun making those details, the hair-pleats on the bodice and hem and the “collar”. The pleats, looseness and lenght of the dress also reminds me of edwardian underwear, which is quite nice I think:)
