Oak Grove, Orego...
Loved this dress and thought it was adorable… Didn’t have any hook and eye clasps, but loved the look of this exposed zipper with the stripes and the olive swishy, stretchy athletic material I bought at a thrift store. Also made the facing red, and love the contrast with the other two, It’s a tiiiiny bit big, but I made it for my taller, more voluptuous “little” sis, and it will fit her BEAUTIFULLY!
Cotton Mattress ticking, red cotton (bed sheet) for facing, and the olive is a very light, stretchy, swishy material that has no wrinkling.
