We’ve had two snow days in a row this week so lots of sewing has been happening! The top of this dress is actually a pair of men’s boxer shorts that I thrifted because I liked the print. So I cut off the leg openings and added some vintage blue buttons that I found at an antique store to the front. The rest of the dress is just different sized rectangles gathered on one side. I used elastic around the waist and then sewed on the sash last. I can’t wait to wear it once it gets warmer!
