Description

Made from bamboo-print thrifted curtains (just like Maria in Sound of Music), but with added leaping cats stamped on (inspired by The House of Flying Daggers). I used Tanit-Isis’ birthday dress pattern, with a couple of modifications. This was an excellent introduction to shirring and I love how loose and comfy this dress is.

Blogged here.

Material Notes

100% cotton curtains, elastic thread, hand-carved lino block and Tulip brand fabric paint.

      Thanks! I think every dress should have a sword to pull it all together ;)
