I dream about original Alfred Shaheen dresses but gave up any hope of owning one a long time ago. Now I can make my own!
This dress was made using Gertie’s Sew Retro course on Craftsy. It was an amazing course I can’t wait to use it again! The techniques learned will definitely change your sewing for the better.
I additionally made a ’50s bolero to go with it from a Simplicity pattern in my stash.
I used Poly Shantung to make the dress more budget friendly.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
