I have had these dresses from Bali in stash for a few years, since the elastic shirring went. The fabric itself was perfectly fine and is so pretty. These three are also all the same pattern, just in different colours.
Based on the colours, I knew I wanted to use them for something for my Aunty and her wife, but wasn’t sure what to make. I needed a last minute Christmas gift for them (wasn’t expecting to see them yet) and since they are embarking on a sustainable lifestyle on an off grid property, I thought a set of reusable market bags, made from recycled clothing, in their fave colours would do the trick.
I thought about making both handles different colours to fully incorporate the idea of a set, but settled with just one colour.
