From duvet to dress!

From duvet to dress!

Spent today turning the Marvels Comics duvet into a dress. The fabric is very stiff, and I think I will throw it into the washing machine at every opportunity until it calms down. But apart from that, it was an easy make. The bodice was made using a pattern, but the skirt utilises the ‘square’ design, and is constructed as a gathered length. I have lined the bodice to do away with facings around the neckline and armholes. I’ve sewn the original Marvels Comics label into the side seam as a quirky touch.

Bright and colourful!

The belt is a length of wide elastic with a ‘nurses’buckle…to finish the look.
