I inherited this turquoise dress from my mum. It was a little too big for me and I decided to make two dresses instead of one.
The dress is made of Crimplene fabric so it’s wrinkle-resistant and retains its shape well. For the upper part I used the pattern #6C from Burda Easy Fashion 02/2010, and the skirt I draw myself.
I made this little application to make it more fun ;)
The skirt from my mums dress I sewn together with one knitted top I also got from her. I had a lambskin on my bed and cut a small part of it to use as decoration around the neck for this dress.
I also made 3 small flowers in felt and sewn with silver tread – to cheer the dress up a bit ;)
