A simple A line shift dress from Burda Style 06/2011. Its made from an old duvet cover in summery colours and I just wanted it as an easy to wear, beach pull on type dress. I made it shorter and put a front Kangaroo pocket on instead of the in seam ones. My husband said it looked like a tennis dress (with ball holding pocket included) which got me thinking about the big knickers. These were also in the same magazine and so whipped up a pair just for fun.
I made my mum one too in blue with quite a few improvements to both dress(darts, fit, sleeve binding..left unhemmed for her to do) and knickers (knickers needed a higer leg cut at the front to stop a strange baggy bit!). Blogged here http://maudmade.blogspot.com.au/2012/03/im-back.html.
I also made my daughter a super easy peasant style dress in the same material.
