Sydney, Australia






Dress made for the Greazefest weekender in Brisbane. For those that aren’t in the know this is a Rockabilly/RocknRoll w/d that happens every year in Brisbane in August.

Material Notes

Print Fabric from Spotlight – linen fabric used for furnishings, fabric is too good for cushions though!
Can’t believe I used a 80’s pattern for this dress.
2mtrs linen
45cm zipper
1/2 mtr contrast scrap fabric

    Very creative dress! Love the choice of fabric and how you combined it with red material. Can’t believe it’s from 80s :)

      Cheers.Fabric was a g8 find. I had a mishap rushing when cutting dress, the ladies were upside down, I made a mercy dash to spotlight and couldn’t believe it, there was just a mtr left on the roll. PHEW!
