Columbia, South ...
I made this dress to honor a birthday date proposed (and delivered) by my beau.
I used pattern Vogue 8280. The fabric is 100% cotton that I bought in pieces at a thrift store in Lexington, SC. Including the pattern this dress cost me approximately $1.50.
I think the waistline is a bit low. For some reason this just doesn’t look quite right to me. I am struggling to make my work exact. It never seems to come out looking tidy.
