A simple dress inspired by the 50’s and my first project ever! Turned out ok i guess and fits perfectly. Fingers crossed you are going to love it!
I decided to start by sewing a dress because I wanted an exciting project. And an occasion was coming up- The Vintage Festival here in Bologna.! So I got my sewing tools , the pattern and lots of patience!
The bodice is not attached to the skirt; I actually prefer to wear the bodice with my favorite white skirt. The bodice is like a cropped top; so perfect for summer!
I hope you like it everybody and I hope to start a new sewing project soon!
I find all your projects fascinating and so inspiring! Thank you everybody!
