The first was meant to be a sample/practise using a navy broadcloth I had at home, but she liked it so much I finished the seams and used home-made bias for the armholes and drawstring casing. The second was with a lovely khaki linen I bought 2 years ago to make myself pants. The pants didn't materialise, so D suggested the cloth was meant to be used for her dress!
She's very pleased with her new dresses, and they are perfect for the hot and humid weather here. And she proves that you can pull off a pillowcase dress, even if you do have curves!
