Suprise dress...

Visby, Sweden






This dress was supose to be a “test dress” just to see if this dress pattern was OK.
Took some cheap fabric from Ikea and thought that I was going to throw the dress away after testing the pattern.
Then this dress became a huge suprise beacuse I just fell in love with both the dress AND the fabric so…
It´s a keeper.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric and polyester thread.




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
