InstructionsIt's a vintage pattern from the 70's, and I've made about 11 dresses from this so far cuz I love it. And I can. It's almost like wearing nothing, which is nice in Texas summers!
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage, Whimsical, Mod, Funky, Outdoorsy, Cute, Casual
I used a large piece of terrycloth I found at the thrift store, that was previously a tablecloth or twin bedcover, not sure which! It's like wearing a thin towel and is ever so absorbent!
What was your inspiration?
The fabric. Bright, 60's flowers in warm tones are right up my alley. I was going to a dayparty outside with bands and a kiddie pool and figured I could splash around in this and it could double as a towel. 100 degree weather + this dress = awesome.
What are you most proud of?
The material. I wish i could say I made it, but just finding it and having it cooperate with my sewing machine and my idea was just delightful.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
