Phoenicia, New Y...
here is my dress loosely based on the tara pattern. i used elastic to make it more formfitting and then sewed ribbon over some of it. i continued the line of the top until it was floorlength. i also added inseam pockets. i’m really happy with it, it came out pretty much exactly how it was in my head. except of maybe it looks fancier than i imagined, but i think i can still wear it on an everyday basis.
fabric by oilily bought during my pilgrimage to oilily in alkmaar, netherlands. ribbon from joann’s.
me for coming up with it and sewing it!
