I wanted a unique and fun dress for a friends wedding. I found a cute bambi winter scene fabric at abakhan which I instantly fell in love with and had a pattern for a 40’s style full skirted tea dress which I shortened.
Only the bodice is lined, with a hidden zip, I also added a corsage of pink ribbon flowers.
bambi pattern cotton, pink dress silk lining, gold dress netting
