Description

This dress was inspired by No Doubt’s video " Don’t Speak". I have always loved the dress in the video as much as the song! I have never really seen anything close to it, and the other challenge would be finding my size. I’m 5’1" and 95 lbs, this is one of the reasons why I make my own clothes. I looked through all my patterns to find a cut similar to the 40’s look of the dress and found this McCall’s 6835, Copyright 1979. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted but I refashioned it a bit and came up with this. Hope you like it, I’m happy with how it came out. <><

    Love your dress – the fabric is pretty and so is the detailing. Even love the combat boots :)
