A spring dress for dreamy girls

Added Nov 10, 2010

Another floral dress that I made last spring. This time I didn’t have to buy any materials, as I decided to use that old floral cotton to my dress instead of making pillowcases of it! I also foud the pretty 50’s fabric-covered metalbuttons from my greatgrandmother’s craftdrawer.

I didn’t follow any pattern.

Material Notes

cotton, buttons

    oh, thank you so much!:) and, kröhm, I must correct that I didn’t follow any BD-pattern, but took some big lines from one of my old patterns. But still I didn’t follow it directly:)

    So beautiful, romantic and retro! I love the collar and the fabric. Well, I love everything about it including the fact you hadn’t used a pattern.

    Very pretty indeed. I love the raised waistline and the length. It makes it so much more girly!
