Description

A rather darling pattern turned into a creation best suited for a Halloween costume. I didn’t mean to look like I crawled out of an episode of the Partridge Family with this frock, but sometimes, these things happen. I blame the irresistible allure of retro fabrics.

    I don’t think this dress is costume-y at all! The dress is really gorgeous and sassy.

    I think it looks really modern and a great day/work/night dress. Really wonderful.

    What pattern did you use?

    It’s romantic and femine. What a lovely dress. It doesn’t look like a Halloween costume to me. :)
