Description

I had this material and really don’t know what to do with it…so I decided to make a simple dress, round neckline, buttons at the back and flare skirt. A ribbon is used as a belt to go around the waist.

The material has a splash of different colours in it…such as orange, yellow and green. I choose to accessorized it with orange since it is the spring colour.

Is the dress too retro or not??

Material Notes

2 yds linen/silk material and 5 buttons
