This project is a variation on the Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress. I changed the neckline, made some alternations in the front and made the skirt a bit smaller. I added pockets in the front and added the contrast trimming and buttons to give it a more modern look.I also adapted the pattern so the dress would fit me better. The fabric i used is a real vintage fabric i received from an elderly lady that lives near me.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
