Description

A dress I made from a cotton jacquard bedspread, satin pillow case, shoe buckles (I think) and a bracelet. The dress skirt (5 pieces) was cut on the bias (I was cutting around stains and snags) something I have never done before (and I am pretty sure I never will again .OY!).

    Thank you everyone for your lovely comments! I made the dress as my entry into The Center for Sustainable Living’s fund-raiser fashion show. I don’t know yet if I will be chosen to have it in the show…but I’m glad I made it in any event. I learned a LOT ! Including that I need to buy more pins!! It took every pin I had lining up those stripes!! Ha ha! :)

    Beautiful! I like the attention to detail, like matching the stripes in the front. And…the back very nicely done!
