Description

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:)

old cotton sheet, buttons

    It’s so much like Edwardian underwear. So incredibly gorgeous. Well done with the pintucks. I tried to the do them the other day and they don’t look anywhere near as neat as yours do.

      oh, thank you, you’re so kind!! And as for the pintucks, I ironed them carefully every time before sewing and I think it helped a lot:)

    Simple but sweet. I like how you added all the details with the lines, the collar and the back with buttons. :)
