Charlotte Hall, ...
I designed and created this dress, using a self-drafted pattern and blue and white striped shirting material. The straps cross in the back and there is elastic at the top of the bodice. There are sixteen little burgundy buttons down the front for closure.The skirt is a “not-quite-circle” skirt, and when the dress is buttoned there is a chevron effect on the front of the skirt. The seams are serged for durability and the skirt has a rolled hem.
To raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, I’m raffling this dress off at my blog. All that is required for entry in the raffle is a small donation to St. Jude. For more details and pics please see the post here.
