    Dolce & Gabbana lemon tablecloth upcycle


    🍋Dolce & Gabbana inspired lemon tablecloth upcycle 🍋 I bought this tablecloth for a few euros on a Saturday morning, took it home and washed it, and by Sunday I was wearing it …and have been wearing it lots since!


    Sewed it up using my Essex Dress pattern, the only change was I had to add a seam at the back to fit the fabric. But I love the way the patterns matched on the center back!



    The Essex is an easy fitting, pull-over dress with a v-neck, gathered shoulders with ruffle or puff sleeves, an elastic waist with side-seam pockets and above the knee hem.

    It’s so versatile, it looks great with different fabrics and colors!



    This lemon design reminds me of southern Italy, it is a perfect dress for summer!



    On the blog and on my YouTube channel you will find more variations of this dress! If you do, feel free to tag me on Instagram @sewingandthecity so I can see it!!
