Description

It’s my second handmade dress. It gave me much more trouble than the first one, but I’m happy with the result ! I learned a lot through the difficulties. I modified a little the pattern (I wanted it shorter, to the knees, and I wanted a heart-shaped neckline), but it’s from “Vogue Vintage model – Original 1952 design – V2902”.

      Thank you ! I’m glad people think it’s okay, because it was a little difficult for me, because of my lack of experience…

    Your second dress? Really? You are doing very well with sewing! You picked a pattern perfect for your bodytype and the polka dots with the white details are so nice! I like it very much!
