|Maxi length Washi dress|
The fabric, being cream, desperately needed a lining. In the absence of any time/inclination to go and shop anywhere, I once again bought a cotton sheet to do the job, this time from Tesco for €10. I used pretty much the whole thing making this dress. Overall, I think it cost about €20 to make this maxi dress. That seems like a lot, but wow, it's fabric hungry. There's like 5m of fabric in this dress, so €20 isn't ridiculous.

I had a bit of a crisis of confidence with this dress because, I have to admit, it's a little Bride of Dracula-ish, and my friend T. also right pointed out that the very plain cream bodice is kind of blah. I've been wearing the dress this afternoon with a little blue empire line cardi, and I think actually that's a much better look.
