Description

I made this using alexphil’s 60s dress pattern. It was relatively easy to work with and I’m quite happy with the result – gonna wear it to uni in the fall.

My mom bought the fabric in ’85 when she was pregnant with me to make herself a maternity dress, but never got around to it – now she gave the fabric to me.

The dress is fully lined yellow inside.

    Plaid always seems perfect for back-to-school… very pretty!

    I like the keyhole detail in the back, and the fabric is really cool.
