Flower dress with bow

Added Jan 22, 2010

by sylvester

Stockholm, Sweden






I’ve had this fabric laying around for years so last month I decided to make something of it. I think it turned out pretty cute and it’s very comfortable. I sew this dress on an overlock.
I made my own pattern.

Material Notes

Stretch fabric, I think it’s cotton.




Garment Type
Romantic, Vintage

    Really lovely! I like the print and the shape of the open back. The bow also is discreet which I think is good, because sometimes things look a little “over-bowed”. I need to get my open back dress done. I’ve had the fabric for almost a year, too.
