Nina Goes to the Races

Without a perfect Race Day (Derby Day) dress to wear {to judge the fashions on the field!!!}, I decided to make something completely unique and eye catching. This dress was created without any pattern or dress form! I think it turned out quite well considering!!!

The bodice is gathered into the neck band, which has snap closures, and a long invisible zip at the side of the dress.

Material Notes

Exclamation printed cotton fabric with white silk lining.

      Thank you so much! The hat/fascinator was made by a friend of mine in response to the fabric. She did a great job!
