It’s my favorite cousin’s birthday this week so I made her a dress as a gift. I used a Simplicity pattern from the 70s that I bought at the thrift store. The striped fabric, the zipper, and the buttons were all from the thrift store as well so the dress has an overall old fashioned feel which I am very pleased with. My cousin is going to France soon and I keep imagining her wearing this dress while wandering the beautiful streets of an old French village.
Striped cotton, 18 inch zipper, and two dark blue buttons.
