Half-Bleached Seren Dress

Added Aug 2, 2018

Tokyo, Japan






I made this summer dress with flounce neckline. Before sewing the dress, I bleached the hem of the flounce and skirt to turn them white, and after that I bleached whole fabric again.
I didn’t sew the hem of the flounce neckline and skirt. I cut the selvages from both sides of the fabric, and attached them to the hem instead of fringes.

    This is a gorgeous dress and I do love how you bleached sections. It’s very effective and makes a fab dress even more fab x
