Ah, how I love this dress! Perfect for the unbearable temperatures here. Made the sleeves longer, added ruffles at the hem, not lined but with neckline facing on the outside. Oh, and I omitted the zipper but with a bit pulling and tugging, I’m able to put it on. Mainly, I was to lazy/cheap to buy a matching one but who would want to fight with a bitchy zipper anyway when the temperatures are 35° C and over _
I recycled old bedsheets that surely are older than I am. I KNEW, I would find the perfect garment to use the fabric for. I also used buttons from the sheets and some leftover satin for piping
