Description

I found this sweet printed fabric for $2 at a thrift store in my area and wanted to make a cute prairie style dress. I took an old 80s sundress pattern, and altered it by cutting it down, reversing the back and front, and giving it a button up front instead of a zipper back. I shortened the skirt pattern, and gave it extra fullness. It turned out to look kind of like a 1950s style. It looks much better on, especially the sleeves.

I can’t wait to wear it with a belt and some boots!
