This was my first attempt at, um, making up my own design. Basically I cut out two slightly-wider-than-me-sized rectangles, sewed them together (with French seams), bias-bound the neckline and armholes, hemmed the bottom, and made a tie belt. Oh, and I put in a pocket.
The fabric is from a thrifted bedsheet from Value Village.
After making that, I decided to make my twin sister Jessica and me matching dresses out of blue linen.
Update: I have since given my dress to Diana because it is a bit too short for me.
