New York, New Yo...
this contest got me sewing again, thank you burdastyle!
a little bit of the 1720’s by way of watteau, a little bit of the 1980’s by way of prince…
i draped and cut and pintucked, no pattern was used, but i was also inspired by the butterick walkaway dress of the 50s.
the back can be worn open or closed, as you like…
if you want to go the prince route (anyone remember the sexy mf performance with the exposed lace buttcheeks?), wear it without a slip! only your sides are exposed, though— this ain’t that kind of party.
wonderful stretchy lace,
and vintage pins from my grandmothers :)
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
