Perhaps you could try to make this dress too?! I did... it took me a while (but I did french seam the ENTIRE dress! I'll take some photos soon and post them for you all to see.
Maybe you could try to reuse some old fabric for the project, some vintage, an old bed sheet, thin curtains...?
Or come over to my Etsy shop and keep an eye out for some upcycled fabrics... more to come soon!
Please email me with your creations or post them on the Revive Revamp Remake Facebook page for us all to admire!
