Description

I found a duvet in the discount bin at IKEA, and it had 5 buttons at the bottom. I used the Burdastyle #101 pattern, but I made the skirt a gathered circle skirt instead. I then added the buttons from the duvet at the top, and there was my dress to wear to the Eiffel Tower.

    You’d never guess it was a sheet to start with, it’s lovely. I’ve just bought this pattern myself and it’ll be the first time I ever make a dress so I’m hoping it’s not going to be too difficult for a novice like me :)

    I like it that you make a circle skirt!
