So it happens that a lot of my sewing projects are made in pink fabric. I'm not quite sure how that happens, as pink probably is not the most flattering color for my skin tone, but I go back to it again and again.



I made this dress to wear on my boyfriend's birthday a few days ago. I made it on the day of in a few hours, so it has some technical "issues" but I'm happy to see a concept actually materialize as I envisioned it. A pattern was not necessary because the pieces are just different-sized rectangles. The bodice is lined and the top and waistline have elastic casings.

Thanks for taking a look! Smiley
