Description

Dreaming of last spring – I was wearing this on a picnic when my then boyfriend proposed – we married three months later!! Based on New Look 6870 which is actually a pattern for a top – I just made it longer and attached a frill at the bottom. It’s not perfect as it was one of my earlier makes, but I love the fabric – I just have to remember to wear a slip or something underneath! Easy, fun and flitry!

Material Notes

Chiffon of some sort. Elastic inside the neck.

    Such a gorgeous dress…! I love the idea of extending a top and adding a frill for romance and femininity!

    I love it and I really like the sheer fabric….but I love the story the most.
