Gold Coast, Aust...
I made this dress using some fabric my mum found in her stash, I think it was probably meant for something like a table cloth, but I made it into a dress instead!
I used the contour bust pattern by miasu for the top part, and basically used a rectangle of fabric for the bottom part, which I put some pleats in.
It wasn’t too hard to make and I like the fit, I think I’ll be using the contour bust pattern again!
