Description

I recently found this 1970’s pattern in a local charity shop and fell in love with it instantly. I thought it would be perfect for a summer dress and I quickly got to work using some blue polka dotted polyester crepe I had in my stash. I was a little worried at how big the collar would turn out but I just love the results. I decided to line the skirt as the material becomes slightly sheer in sunlight, and I added some wooden buttons as I thought plain ones would just get lost in the print.
