Description

I made this dress suing the Maryy pattern. I added my own matching petticoat to go underneath my rather sheer polkadot fabric, and double lined the bodice. I added a few of my own embellishments like the silk ribbon and mother of pearl buckle bow and another polkadot bow to make the lace edged petticoat match. I also bound every single seam on the interior of the dress to make it all the more delightful to step into.

The petticoat is simply the skirt from the maryy pattern with an elastic waste band and a vintage lace hem.

    So pretty! I love all of the detailing… so sweet! I have this same fabric in color (raspberry and gold ombre, if you can imagine… looks wildly different). This is a very nice variation.
