Cap sleeves dress

I really like the retro look of this pattern and I just got some floral printed cotton on hand so this dress is made. I didn’t have a invisible zipper so I installed ordinary zipper, not very nice though. I’ll definately install a invisible zipper next time.

Material Notes

Floral printed cotton bought from online store in China.

    So pretty. I agree this is a great pattern. I haven’t tried it but your lovely dress only helps to move it further up the project list :-)

      Thanks! Yes, I hope so, too, but our lowest temperature today is 4 c.
