For long time I wanted a yellow dress, but didn’t find the right yellow fabric. During shopping at IKEA I saw the perfect yellow … bedclothes! But cotton is cotton, right? I used a Vintage Vogue Pattern (V8789) with a simple classic 50’s silhouette. As only alteration I added pockets hidden in the sideseams.
I like the print of the fabric so much and the skirt is so full, so there is no petticoat needed on hot summerdays.
