Description

I fell in love with the chevron-ed bodice on Vintage Vogue 8789 when it first came out. These floral-striped thrift store sheets were the perfect match to make a Horrockses-esque frock! I added horsehair braid and a crinoline underneath to get the full-skirted retro look. Perfect for a summer afternoon wedding!

Material Notes

two 100% cotton, very crisp twin fitted sheets, 14" zipper, seam binding, horsehair braid
