I found a large half-made dress in a second-hand shop. Someone had started making it and for whatever reason had abandoned it. They had even hand stitched on handmade binding around the neckline!
There was a lot of fabric so I was able to cut this whole dress out of it! I like the fact that this dress was going to be one dress and turned into a completely different one.
It has a cut-out neckline and pleats at the hem.
I have just opened an etsy shop. This dress is for sale there.
Second hand cotton.
