I made this dress from a vintage sheet.
What was your inspiration?
I stumbled across Lekala patterns and fell in love with the fact that the pattern was so reasonable and made to my measurements. After making up a free skirt pattern of theirs, I decided to go for a dress.
What are you most proud of?
That it fits perfectly and I didn't have to spend tons of valuable time redrafting the pattern. My 34H chest, wide waist and tiny bottom make for tricky pattern alterations and this was a huge time saver as the pattern was customized to my measurements.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You do need some sewing knowledge as the instructions are good, but basic.
