Flowers and polka dots dress

Charlotte Hall, ...






This dress is a reconstruction, sort of. I actually completed this several months ago, but hadn’t gotten around to posting it here, until now.

I integrated the decorative button placket and collar from a vintage ’60s sewing pattern, into a sleeveless bodice made with a t-shirt.

I traced and re-drafted the pattern to make the neckline wider and lower and the placket wider. The button placket is solely decorative; it’s stitched on top of the bodice. There is facing around the neckline.

If you would like to see more details about the process, and/or more pictures, please feel free to visit the post on my blog.

    This is brilliantly put-together version of a t-shirt dress. It looks so comfortable! The collar and placket are adorable.
