Costa Mesa, Cali...
This dress was a fun project, I drafted it from a vintage blouse that I have and I loved the no seam sleeves.
The plaid fabric was an awesome vintage fabric I found at a thrift shop.
The cowl was an addition which is just a rectangular piece of fabric folded over and sewn around the neckline sort of like you would a waistband on pants.
Closes with a zipper and the cowl buttons up with slivers of black elastic and buttons…
The piping on the sleeves and in the back seam are makeshift piping that I used shoe laces from the dollar store… in a bind doubled up they work just like piping!
