A dress inspired by my childhood idea of what a dress should be. Pink, full skirted, polka-dotted, a sweetheart neckline with a bow, and hidden pockets (which I forgot to photograph).
The skirt portion was made with two layers, the pink fabric and a white cotton lining with a triangle trim, and gathered.
The top was based off of Miasu’s contour bust dress, but I modified the back so it wasn’t so low—more of a retro style, and altered the length.
I trimmed everything with white bias tape.
There are some problems with it, but for my first real sewing project, without any real pattern, I’m happy with it.
