Shift Over!!

Added Nov 10, 2009

London, United K...






It’s based on the Anda dress pattern. I added a bright red lining ( I love bright contrasting lining!) and put in a couple of pleats in the back neckline. It was abit plain so I added a ruffle placket thingy to the front. It’s quite loose, which I like…sometimes.
Pictures are abit grainy because my camera is rubbish :)

Material Notes

Grey Cotton material, which is printed with skulls in a paisley type print! I love thr skulls pattern, you have to look abit to see it!
Red Cotton Lining
3 mismatched buttons (Freee- came extra on clothes I bought)

    Looks lovely. I used to wear shift dresses in the 1960’s….used to love the freedom in them.

    Love it! Where abouts in London do you shop for fabric? I’m always at a loss! Also, did you just not include the belt from the Anda pattern, or did you alter it further?

      hey, thanks! I didn’t include the belt bit from the anda at all, I did cut the pattern a little smaller so that it wouldnt be flarey without the belt.
      I got the material from my local market, the asian fabric stalls are really cheap. Sometimes fabric is quite expensive in shops and online!
