So… a bit over a year ago I cut up my mother’s curtains to make my second ever dress! It was fun! (First one’s here on my blog: The Colour Blocking 101-Dress )
I absolutely adore this pattern, but I made a few changes anyway:
1) a shorter skirt
2) French seams
3) crochet lace <3
4) cut out back with mushroom-fabric-covered buttons
5) no facing around the neckline – only around the cut out in the back
6) almost-sweetheart neckline
If you’re interested, there are a few more pictures in my brandspanking new blog !!
