I made a 70s inspired dress out of Flowerpower denimlook sweatshirting that I was gifted by Zicca fabrics. Ruffles, denim and flowers work well together!

I sewed an Empire or Regency style dress using a pattern by Sense & Sensibility. Now, after completing my whole outfit I took part in a historical picnic.
