One dress, two ways

A while ago when Helen and I were op-shopping in Palmerston North I bought a floral smock-fronted dress that I had on intention of wearing. It was beautiful though and there was something about the fabric that I couldn’t pass up.

Ever since it’s been sitting in the sewing pile and was recently made into a petticoat for me (by adding lace detail) and a zip purse for my friend Abby’s birthday. Here it is:
