Description

I haven’t posted any projects for over a year and now it’s time to catch up! I made this flowing summer dress two years ago. Its lightweight viscose (I love viscose!) mini dress with pleats at the top, little collar and button closure at the back. We have button-machine in school so I’m able to make matching fabric covered buttons :) I made the pattern myself which was quite tricky with all those pleats… however I think it was worth the struggle because the pleats are what this dress is about :)

Material Notes

Viscose fabric, fabric covered button

    What an adorable dress, kudos for making your own pattern! And the color is beautiful. It’s good to see you back, I missed your lovely projects :) And I can totally relate to your catching-up situation, I also have a huge backlog of stuff that need to be photographed. When it comes to documenting my work I’m the worst :)
