This dress was made from a pattern for a blouse but I love dresses so there you are. I used pattern New Look 6962 view B. It came out looking really baby like so I altered it to have a slimmer silhouette.
I enjoyed making this dress. Best part is my boyfriend thought it looked nice the moment he saw me in it. That’s all that matters to me!
2 yards of cotton, one 22 inch zipper, 3 5/8" buttons, and canvas for the trim. Canvas was handy and it was really white.
