Frill Bottom Dress

This frill bottom dress came about as I had a piece of fabric I couldn’t quite work with. It was 150 centimeres wide and 107 centimetres long. Too short for a dress. If I made a top would have left-over fabric I couldn’t use. I’m loving all the frills going on so had a go at this dress. I would have preferred a wider frill with a bit more gather but I worked with what fabric I had. The pattern is below.
