1950’s style summer dress, princess seams in the bodice, gathered waist full skirt it has an invisible zipper in the CB seam. I made all my own bias binding for the contrast around the neck and armholes, to eliminate putting in a facing and also to add some detail. I made the waist tie in the same brown poly/cotton.
Poly/cotton print, plain, zipper
