Despite having started most of my #memademay2019 projects, it's taken me until May to finish my first one.
This dress is made from an Australiana tea towel I got from the Mannum op shop for $2. It required some very creative cutting, as I wanted it to consist mostly of the red border, rather than the white centre. The second picture is of the back hem, and if you look closely you can see where the top of the front piece is chopped out of it, and filled in with scraps later.
The dress was designed to gave a loose but flattering fit, coupled with the linen it will be ideal for looking nice on disgustingly hot days.
