This dress is verrrrry different to my usual style. For one I can breath in it. Ah the novelty!
This is stash busting at its very best, both the fabric and the patten were my Nan’s, and passed onto me. Horrah, free dress!
In the interest of not looking like I was wearing a muu-muu, I made some slight changes to the patten, I omitted the facings and zipper, shortened the length and deepened the neckline.
