This dress is my second project from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Book. I used master pattern Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress for dress bodice and instead of using straight gathered-skirt that original pattern had, I used my self-drafted semi-pleated skirt pattern.

I also shared my project on my new facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/velvetribbonsew.
2 yards of Japanese cotton voile, white cotton for lining, fusible interfacing, invisible zipper and same color thread.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
