Vysocina, Czech ...
My friend asked me to design and sew a retro swing dress as a present for his girlfriend. This was a big challenge for me as I have never sewn for anyone else before.
For bodice I used pattern for ribbon dress that I used many times for myself. This time it is size 40/42 and I had to add bust side seams and change the vertical seems a bit.
The skirt pattern is just simple half circle .
The dress is fully lined with added tulle petticoat.
I used Michael Miller fabrics Blue and White Collection
pieces of satin for the flower
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
