Floral dress with lace collar

Added Nov 23, 2010

Gloucester, Unit...






I found this pretty floral fabric in the form of curtains and felt it must live again. I drafted the pattern myself, and it is similar to my blue vintage-inspired floral dress, but with a twist. It has a triangular cut-out on the back, with clear buttons and an invisible zip. I really like this feminine style of dress complete, of course, with a lace collar ;)

    Gorgeous fabric, I wouldn’t have let it remain as curtains either.

    I love the back of the dress and the fabric and the lace collar! Do you make the lace collar yourself or did you buy it? It’s amazing

      Hello again :)
      The lace collar is actually a doilie, which I cut the decorative edge off and sewed it round the neck. As long as you cut carefully, this is a really simple thing to do.
