I wanted a very simple dress I can wear to work on New Year’s Eve. Found a gorgeous silk fabric in light blue and Alexandra’s 60’s dress was the perfect inspiration. Made it a bit longer than the original. It was my first time sewing a side zipper on a dress, and also had some problems with lining not showing but at the end I am absolutely happy with the result. Probably one of my favorite dresses.
