Description

after successfully making the danielle into a skirt, i bought more ikea fabric and decided to make the full danielle dress….
unfortunately i didnt follow the instructions correctly and, due to a dart mishap, the bodice wouldn’t fit. sooo, i just slipped in an invisible zip and put in some cream lining and called it a skirt!

i love how this one and my previous one are essentially the same skirt, but because they have slightly different sized waists, this one sits higher and tighter and gets a cute bell shape, whereas the other one sits lower and has more of an a-line, so they look totally different!

    this is lovely, and what a beautiful colour choice – I must get to my locak Ikea sometime soon – they have a great range of fabrics :-)
