Me & Mini-Me dressed in old curtains.

Matching dresses for me and Wilma. I’ve used some old curtains for the project. Once again – hurray for upcycling.

My dress is based on the 1960’s Retro Simplicity Pattern 3833 – with a few adjustments.

Wilma’s dress is based on a vintage Butterick pattern.

    How adorable is this! I love your work. You’ve got such an eye for colours and details, I can’t believe you’re self taught. I absolutely love your work

    I always enjoy looking at your creations. I love your color palette and the shapes you pick and the patterns you choose. They’re always fun and bright and they make me smile!

    So cute! I just love your stuff. I wish I could find old sheets like that lying around to upcycle!

    Too cute! Love this! And really love the detail of the upward curve on the bodice of the little one’s dress, and the downward curve on yours. Very nice detail.

    Hvor er de søde! Fedt når man kan genbruge, og det så bliver så tjekket!
