One Piece of Fabric, Three Projects: What We Made.

Hello! :) A few days ago I posted about the idea 'One Piece of Fabric, Three Projects' on which Laura of Tagträumerin, Stefanie of Squeaky Swing and I have been working. We found an awesome piece of vintage fabric, each one of us kept 2 meters and we all sewed something different. :)
So here you can see all of our three projects at once, each made with lots of love, using this super pretty and colorful piece of fabric! :)
As I have already written quite often, I love projects with fellow bloggers and it was lots of fun working on this one. Stefanie wrote that this fabric will always remind us of each other and I couldn't agree more: when wearing my new, handmade dress, I will always think of those two great girls and the awesome time we spent with each other this summer! :)
Wow, this is Laura's beautiful skirt! It's a paperbag waist skirt and she did not only share her colorful outfit with her skirt, but also a detailed and really good tutorial for how to sew such a skirt oneself! (In case you forgot or didn't even now, Laura is not only a tailor, but she also studies fashion design and I'm always impressed by her sewing skills and sense for fashion... :))

Next, Stefanie has sewn a super pretty pillow case to use it for home decor purposes. Doesn't it look great in that beautiful chair with the romantic blanket? She has also shared a tutorial for how to make it, there are super easy and perfectly understandable step-by-step instructions so that even sewing beginners can make such a pretty pillow case themselves! :)

And here's finally what I have sewn, a super easy dress (I took the cut of a vintage dress and some of you asked me to provide a pattern, I hope I'll find some time for it, soon! :)) which I showed you in an outfit post a few days ago and combined it with matching accessories. :) This was lots of fun and I miss those two talented girls a lot!

Did you like what we turned this pretty vintage fabric into? :) What would you have done with it? ;) I still have got a little bit left (too sad that it's not enough to sew such a pillow case like Stefanie or such a great skirt like Laura), maybe I'll make a little neckerchief or a pouch. :)
Thanks for reading and happy weekend!
