Upper secondary school: finished! Here’s the 50s/60s inspired graduation dress I sewed. There’s a lacy petticoat under the dress to make it a bit more puffy. I shortened the gloves by using satin side string and added tiny bows on them (the gloves were bought, I didn’t sew them). You may notice some similarities between this and my evening gown… No pattern was used!
thick purple cotton, satin, invisible zipper.
