Kind of 60's dress

Added Sep 1, 2011

Barcelona, Spain






I drafted this pattern following the instructions of “How to Make your Own Patterns” and it was quite easy. I thought that my small bust would stand out more with a princess seam, so I started with this idea and the rest came with it. I think it looks like a 60’s dress and am not sure whether I can wear it to work, but I love it, and I really love the fabric.

Material Notes

Cotton, bought at

      Thanks a lot, I thought that these details would make the dress, since the pattern was simple.
