Funnily enough; this is an exact replica of a bed sheet my parents used to have on their bed when I was a child. You should have seen my mothers' face when she saw me unpicking this doona cover!
This dress was also the first one made with my new friend the overlocker! How exciting! The inside of the dress looks all finished and professional and I am super proud of the end product. Even if the first make of the dress was too big for me as it was a size 16 pattern. Better too big than too small so I just nipped it in and now it fits like a dream. For the photo I have put on a large pink tulle petticoat so you can see how much the skirt flares out.
Can not tell you how wonderful it feels to wear this dress; it is so satisfying making a retro styled halterneck dress! :)
Materials: Doona cover from Graceville McIntyre Centre, zip from St Vinnies Sumner Park, sewing pattern from a VERY long time ago; it's one of the very first I ever bought.
Cost to make: approx. $7.20
