A dress made of old sheets from Stylish Dress Book by Yoshiko Tsukiori. I chose dress j so I could finally learn how to make pintucks – they’re easier than expected but I love the end result! I am going to be more careful about my pattern size next time as the size that was for me turned out to have way too much ease – makes me feel like I’m wearing a hospital gown instead of a cute dress.
