Description

As soon as I saw this bird fabric I knew I had to BUY IT ALL. How could I not? It matches my tattoos! So I bought it and then it languished. That is, until I got Hollywood Pattern 855 and I knew it was a match made in heaven. I did a LOT of modifications as I’m not even CLOSE to having a 30" bust or 33" hips. But it was worth it in the end. I get a lot of compliments whenever I wear this one out, even from people who do not wear vintage.

Material Notes

This is definitely some sort of polyester blend but since the print is so pretty, we’ll forgive it for that, yes?
