Description

This is my favorite garment so far, I LOVE it! The pattern is self drafted and was inspired by the 1940s and Kate Middleton’s yellow dress. I embroidered the flowers myself and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The A line skirt is also self drafted and I have a tutorial on my blog for. I’ve used the skirt quite a few times now and I love it!
For more information on the construction of the dress and the embroidery you’re welcome to check out my blog post#.
