I made this dress as a part of Sonia’s Cose Conmigo, and now it is finally finished in a big delay.
As I didn’t know if a slim pencil skirt would work for me, I turned it into an A-line skirt, which was fairly easy to do. I love A-line skirts!
I used cotton fabric for the dress, which was probably not the best idea as it wrinkles a lot, but it feels very comfortable, so that I only lined the skirt (with bright pink lining fabric).
