Description

I made this dress after making one for my friend. I wanted to try matching stripes, so I made the skirt in 7 pieces and sewed them together to a full circle. To make the dress a little more fun I put some details on the back. to give the dress more fullness I made a petticoat to have under. The fabric is a light cotton.

5 m nylon net

    I did also sew this dress (bodice) with a circle skirt (haven’t photographed yet). Pretty!
