This is a maxi-dress I made a couple of years ago. $2 per metre cotton and a shirred bodice with a big ruffle on the bottom. Sooo comfortable and nice to wear but the cheap fabric didn't last. We had just been swimming at South Bank on Australia Day - it isn't very flattering but I love that my son is so cuddly!
Gratuitous photo as no sewing done as I am painting (well so far scraping, sanding and filling) the lounge room. The last time it was done was when Princess Diana died and I was travelling in South America - an old boyfriend did it as a surprise!
