St. Louis, Misso...
Well this fabric has a history. I remember my babysitter taking me to go buy this fabric when I was very little (I am 16 now) because I wanted some curtains. Then when I got older I remade part of the curtains into a pair of pants. Then I made the pants into a dress (pictured above.) When i heard about this project I knew just which of my dresses to remake- the one that had been remade so many times before :)
Because this is sponsored by Rowenta I decided to make a dress with very crisp pleats. I wanted it to look young and fun, but still classy.
^ that is the dress I re-made
