Description

this lovely material was a present from my mum this summer and I have been contemplating what to do with it ever since. It had to be something to show off the border and I just couldn’t decide on anything until now. I combined two patterns (top no. 125/5/11 and bottom no. 101/02/11) and am really happy with the result !
Lined only the bodice part, not the skirt.

Material Notes

not sure what it is. the material is rather thick but still drapes nice. guessing some kind of blend maybe?
lining and I used a big chunky zip

    What a perfect use of the fabric. I would be wearing this all the time.

    If I give your Mum my mailing address, can she send me some as a present too? ;)

      And sorry to dissapoint you, but I have dips on anything else that might still be lying around in my mum’s cupboards :-))))
