This is the first dress I ever made, it was created about 2 years ago and took 2 hours in total. I didn’t use a pattern, I just pinned it on myself and made the appropriate alterations/modifications. It fastens at the back with ribbon threaded through button holes. Not bad for a first attempt!
Old curtain material and ribbon.
