Description

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.

    I agree with all of the above. So cute and flattering, and for $1.50? Amazing.

    I disagree. That waist length is flattering on you. The only thing you might do next time is make the back waist a smidge higher than the front (by taking out a wedge shape on the back piece) to help eliminate that minor wrinkling at the small of your back. The shape of the dress is both interesting and flattering on you.

      Thanks for the advice. I think that will help “clean it up.” Much appreciated!

    I think its adorable!! I love the sleeves/shoulders and neckline! no one will notice if the waist is too low! :)
