Description

The original pattern is from a Japanese sewing magazine (Female, 1998). I altered the neckline and shortened the dress length. The trimmings run along the selvage edges of the fabric. I positioned them at the dress and sleeves hem which saved me a lot of work!

Material Notes

Light cotton fabric with lace trimming on the selvage. It also has cream flowers sewn all over it. I dom’t know what it is technically called. Zipper, preferably invisible kind.

      Thank you! I cut out 2 pieces of the flower trim thingy, and sew it over the zipper pull.
