So happy with how this turned out! I used a pattern drafting book to draft the bodice pattern. The fabric is from a childrens duvet-cover that I found at the Salvation Army two years ago. First I made it into a simple skirt but then I took it apart to make this dress.
Inspired by Betty Draper and Tasia’s Betty Draper inspired dress!
I’m also proud of the inside of the dress :)
