Summer Come Back

I have always had the idea in my mind to create a dress like this but it always felt like no fabric was ever good enough for this style. One day while I was roaming through a second hand store looking for hidden treasures I came across this fabric (originally used as a bed comforter). I fell in love at first sight and ta da.. the rest is history!

This quaint little dress is complete with a high top neckline, a pleated skirt and a very dramatic open back. It is made with 100% cotton fabric and a lot of love!

I hope you like it!

    I did use a pattern but I strayed away from it a lot! And i added some parts and took some away. One day I will sit down and draw out the pattern that i used. I’ll post it when I get the chance (:
