pretty as you feel dress
Added Jun 22, 2010
DescriptionI actually stayed up until 3 am last night working on this particular dress. I saw this fabric at Karlin’s Fabrics in Philly and knew that it would make the most perfect 60s inspired dress. I was looking through my vintage patterns but really wasn’t seeing what I was envisioning for this particular fabric. So, I used the bodice pattern from a vintage Butterick #6624 that came in three front pieces that were stitched together. The pattern called for a strange pleated skirt, but I opted to freehand it, cutting rectangles and then gathering then and attaching them to the bodice. For an extra retro feel, I attached a bow in the front.
I really like how it turned out!
