Description

Jenny dress with a simple gathered skirt.
I will make this dress again, but I will alter the bodice so I feel less exposed (I have worn a shirt underneath both times I have worn this).

    This is a very lovely dress, I understand your cleavage problem, but I think this is easily solved with a beautifull brooche! :-)

    So pretty, I love your fabric. If you feel too exposed maybe you could make a cammi to go under with some pretty lace to peak through the v part :)

    I really like your variation. The full skirt looks great! You’ve inspired me to try something similar.

    Lovely! I love it’s 50’s feel, and I understand about the exposing V! It doesn’t seem so low in the original pics, but you do see the model’s bra in those pics. Great work!

    It is a veautiful dress, you can add a little ruffles to the ’’V" neck.

    Great looking dress! You could add a piece of fabric or lace across the bodice.

    Love the dress! I think I’d have to wear something under it but it looks fabulous on you.

    You could maybe add a small clip button to secure the cleavage… Anyway, this dress is gorgeous! It looks like you have given a lot of attention to the details, and your choice of fabric is perfect! So fall-y!!!
