Description

I made this dress using a pattern from 1981 that I found at a thrift shop. I ignored the elastic waist (ick) and instead made a small belt loop at the top back and made a wrap around belt for it from some ribbon.

It has pockets! I want to add pockets to everything now!

Material Notes

Vintage 1930’s sheer cotton.

    I love this! I’m a vintage pattern nut :o) The 80s seemed like they were ALL ABOUT elastic for some reason!! I definitely think you made the right move replacing it with the tie, it’s supercute!
