Description

This dress was made in October since it was Pink month. I used a retro pattern that I so loved, it is B5603 from Butterick which is such a great pattern. I strongly recommend it.

The style has a flared skirt, princess seams, zipper at the side and it is completely lined. There are two ties around each shoulder which is knotted in the form of bows.

I modified the style by shortening the length, using lace to highlight the small white dots in the fabric by placing them at each seam lines.

Really hope you can see the small dots in the fabric as the lighting was working against it.

I totally love it and hope you do too :-)

    Well that is one hot dress! Just the right amount of see-through! I really like what I can see of the lace seam detail, gives a translucent effect, unusual and interesting. An I love that hat with it!

    Together with the hat it looks like a dress for a Summer stroll along the seashore, very stylish!

    This is a beautiful very romantic dress kisses and it’s gorgeous on you. I love all the littles details on this dress. I’m making a similiar colour dress for my next break, hopefully in march. I think you styled it perfectly and don’t get me started on your heels!! Lol ! I love them. They give a sexy edge to a very girly dress and you look fabulous in all your photos x
