Description

Believe it or not this dress is made from a bedsheet…a Kenzo Bedsheet! I loved the print so much it took me a year to decide what to do with the fabric, then finally I stumbled across a retro Butterick pattern – et voila!! The neckline is just beautiful, I love the cross over detail and the gathered shoulders. Though admittedly they were a pain to sew, so I love them a little less now haha.
