I made a dress for my sister! She saw a black maxi-dress on Kollabora a while ago, and asked me if I could make one for her.
I was thinking a while on how I would make it, the fabric I bought was just laying there for weeks, but when I bought the Hey June raglan sweater pattern I decided to use that one. I shortened it a whole lot, and added the skirt by gathering a straight piece of fabric. For a better fit I added an elastic to the waist.
