poppy dress

I bought a long skirt in a  thrift store in Portland 3 years ago, intending to do something with it because I liked the fabric so much...and yep, three years later I finally did. I've spent the past week off and on sewing this; I gave myself some frustrating challenges because I cut some pieces too short and had to keep adding material here and there to give more length in places.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's really comfortable, too. I feel like it took much longer to sew than it should have, but not having a real pattern to work with to make the top made it challenging. I had to take out hems a lot and redo things as I went.
