Description

Look at this amazing silk! Even though I had all kinds of fitting issues (no-duh, if you don’t make a muslin…!) it turned out fabulous. So I called it the wonderland dress not only because of the print…
The pattern is trickier to make than you’d think, the fitting really needs to be done carefully, and it is difficult if you are doing it on yourself… I posted a bit more about all that on my blog.
I also made the hat and the sandals, and I posted a full tutorial for the sandals on my blog, also! They are easy and pretty fast to make!
Now off to fall projects…!
