This dress is still a work in progress and is basically a glorified Muslin/Toile.
I’ve put together the Jenny skirt with a bodice pattern and some simple rectangle sleeves. It has a button strap up the whole centre back.
It is fully reversible and is lined with a bird printed cotton from IKEA
I’ve been scouting around for the perfect fabric for this dress and have now found a red and green plant print cotton that is going to look great. I may omit the sleeves and add a large drape at the front ala NinaRibenasHot Pink Cocktail frock….watch this space!
Grey checked wool, ikea bird print
