Los Angeles, Cal...
My 2nd attempt at the Margarete using some more of the old sheet set that I have been chopping up recently. I also bought some lovely blue cotton to have a go at doing the pipping and it wasnt actually as hard as I thought it would be. I added a blue hem to the top to make it a bit longer and added a small bust dart to make the bust area fit more snugly. My husband thinks it has a bit of a nautical look, which I can go with and the pugs seem to like it too!
