Description

I started this last summer and finished it too late.
I had big problems with the slip I wanted to make to go with it, so I stopped working on it. I now bought a simple undershirt for 3,99€ and sewed a skirt part (made from an bedspead) to the bottom. It has french seams.
I’m not quite happy with the bust of the dress, but I think it’s alright for now. I’m just happy that I can wear it now.
I didn’t make the bolero I wear in the photos.

Material Notes

White 100% cotton eyelet fabric with embroderies for the dress
100% polyester for the slip

Difficulty

Intermediate

    That’s cool how you pieced it together…. I was wondering about the bolero, I am really interested in making one soon when I can find a cheap or free pattern. I like the dress, I like simple and clean designs. Great fabric choice also. :) Happy sewing!
