Fairytale/Tea Party Dress!

A ‘sweet and innocent’ dress made from an upcycled cotton duvet cover!

This was inspired by lots of 50s style dresses i’ve seen around recently, and to me looks like something out of a fairytale or something you should wear to ‘afternoon tea’! The panels in white and green were cut from the two sides of the bedlinen. The top is lined for modesty and comfort, and i really like the wide halterneck straps. I based the pattern on a 50s style dress i’ve had for a while, but made the skirt longer and the sizing overall a bit bigger (a bit too big to be honest, it’s come out a couple of sizes too big as i was expecting the shirring on the back to pull it in more!)

Still, i do like it, and will look out for bolder fabric to make more in the same design!
