Description

This print reminded me of something vaguely southwestern and Mexican. So my first idea was a kind of poncho-like dress, but, that looked terrible on me, so I gathered the shoulders and put some pleats in the front and back at the waist, and voilà! I didn’t use any kind of pattern for this dress… I just cut out a neck hole, sewed up the sides, and then added the pleats & gathers.

Material Notes

Some kind of synthetic sheerish material from a jumble sale. The woman i bought it from said it had previously been used as a curtain.
