I had inherited a wonderful pair of vintage curtains from my grandmother-in-law, and I thought they would make a great little 1960s day dress. They have an awesome print, reminiscent of Egypt and coincidentally that was where I was going on holiday!
This dress is a self-drafted pattern incorporating dart manipulation in which I moved the bust and waist darts to a triangle position.
