Description

Found this wonderful floral cotton fabric at Eurokangas and thought it might look good as a dress, so here’s the result.

Two mistakes made: the buttons on the back are slightly….not in line?
And the dress would look far better on a person with much larger breasts than what I’ve got, but thankfully both problems can be fixed (although I’m probably too lazy to fix either).

Three buttons on the back and no zippers. Dress is a bit above me knees so quite short?

Material Notes

100% florar patterned cotton fabric, very light
Three old buttons

    I love the dress and you totally deserve to get a sewing machine, that’s all I have to say =)

      I agree, I’ve just never found a lining that would breathe well enough (I’m very heat-sensitive).
      I should probably look more :D

      Thanks :3
