Mother-in-Law Dress

My mother-in-law, which is a very nice person, gave me an old dress of hers to do whatever I wanted with it. So I made my first try in up cycling, and I’m really happy with the result!
I removed the sleeves, fitted the dress with darts, added the collar, and kept the buttons at the back.

There is more information on my blog: Marie in the cave

Material Notes

A vintage cotton dress from ca. 1972
