Arroyo Grande, C...
I made this dress with the intention of it having something of a french vibe, hence the striped bow. It’s made with a red cotton twill and the bow is just a regular quilting cotton. I used New Look pattern number 6910. I made it while living in Tonga as a Peace Corps volunteer, and sewing supplies were somewhat hard to come by, so I wasn’t able to locate a long-enough zipper. I improvised and left the top part of the back open with a button at the top. Hopefully it looks intentional!
