Grey Gardens Dress

Added Sep 18, 2010

Nashville , Tenn...






For this dress, I mimicked the style of a ModCloth dress. I made some changes to a vintage Simplicity pattern (mostly just fitting and sizing changes). I also don’t like following pattern instructions. So, I altered the pieces and constructed it in the way that I saw fit. :)

    It is absolutely adorable! I wanted to know more about how you did it, so I checked out your blog, and I saw the pattern you used. The great thing is, I own that exact pattern! I found it at a yard sale. So I might just have to try making a dress like this one! Thanks!
