Another project using fabric from my stash. I had a retro-themed party to go to, so I made myself a quintessential 1960’s dress based on Butterick 5748 (a retro re-issue pattern). It also works for everyday wear, just not with the puffy crinolines. Blogged here
Cotton brocade. Bodice lined with some sort of lining fabric of unknown fiber content.
