Description

I found a lovely green-white fabric and thought that it would look wonderful as a fifties inspired dress so this is what happened.

All done by hand.
There are buttons at the back, no zipper.

Below a completely different project, a white petticoat.

I didn’t use any patterns.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric, not very thin.
Ooooold buttons, dark.
