Den Haag, Nether...
After reading ‘a dress a day’ for a while now, I really wanted to make a vintage style dress. I drafted this pattern myself. It’s got kimono sleeves, a shawl collar, buttons at the front and an invisible zipper at the side and a full circle skirt. Although I really like the look of it worn with belt, it doesn’t need a belt to keep its shape. I plan on uploading the bodice pattern (with instruction to make the skirt) but I have very little time, so please be patient.
