My sister is going to Cape Verde on holiday this month and asked me to make her a dress… She said that she wanted one “exactly like that one that Eva Longoria is wearing in the Magnum advert”. I took a look at it and I made one NOTHING like it… hahahaha. Though I think this is better because it won’t show her boobs too much.
She loves green, so I bought this lightweight cotton and lined the skirt with silk lining. Hope she likes it… I now have to post it to her in Holland, but hopefully you’ll like it too.
Cotton fabric, silk lining, invisible zipper
