i made this dress from one very big vintage house dress
i cut old dress in half
and used bottom part for skirt of my new dress
for the bodice
i used pattern from burda magazine 3/2011, mod. 101
old dress had front closing with buttons
i saved the buttons, but only as embellishment
(dress closes with zipper on the left side)
i also saved pockets from previous dress
see more on my blog
vintage dress (unknown fabric), boning, light blue cotton for bodice lining
