This dress was based on the Elizabeth Gathered Waist pattern from the new Burda Vintage Modern book. Not being a big fan of square necklines, I decided to change the neckline to a soft v-style. I then added a squared off Peter Pan collar in a contrasting fabric. I made a leather belt, with contrasting leathers to modernize this adorable 50’s style.
I used a poly-cotton fabric, crenoline for the slip, an invisible zipper and lambskin leather for the belt.
