Description

Have had this Vouge Vintage Pattern (V2902) sitting in my pattern stash for a while and decided to give it a wirl for summer. (Bit late on posting!)
The lining is, for me, too hot for summer!!! Nice for the cooler weather we’re having :-)
Lots of hand stitching went on for attatching the bodice band (that’s my name for it) and both hems, not to mention most of the lining on the inside too.
Will make this one again in some very fun fabric!!! but with some modifications to the bodice of the dress.
Will take some better photo’s next time. I need a photographer lol!

Material Notes

Black linen fabric and black acetate lining
