Description

For my niece Louise. Using the technique from the 8 dollar dress, but here I altered it a lot. The skirt is in double layers, and I sewed on two strings in a slip (not a clue what that’s called in english… “Dragsko” in swedish) to make the under layer show a bit more…. I wish I had done the strings and slip a bit longer though… however…
I really enjoyed playing with the 2 colors! I came up with everything as I went, and since I didn’t have any pattern, just went with the flow… Really fun dress to make!

Material Notes

Elastics and Cotton, really cheap…. not over 15 dollars all in total I think
