Description

This is project No.2 (week 2) from my garment-per-week challeng. My inspiration comes from project 1977 by Scheryka.
When I saw that pattern I felt like having a 70’s style dress, and I remembered that I had a similar old pattern from an old BWOF. Then I picked this dotted cotten fabric from my stash and here’s the result!

I’m not %100 happy though. This pattern would’ve been nicer on a softer fabric.

    Love it belted! I agree about the red stitching….really takes it up a level.

    I’m a big 70s fan and I love the polka dots. Great dress! It’s so vintage with those shoes too! Perfect!
