Description

My attempt at the classic Walk-away dress, inspired partly by TeaAndCakey’s version. The 17 foot skirt was a doozy to hem. I should have stayed away from the metallic bias binding, though, because it’s really itchy and frays at the ends.

Material Notes

5 yards of teal cotton, 3 packages of gold bias binding, two gold buttons.
