Made from Vintage Vogue 1044 out of stretch cotton sateen from Jo-Anns. It took me a while to finish it since I had to (have my mom) do the hem by hand. She volunteered! I swear! It needs a hook and eye at the waist, but it’s a good dress for work in winter. Wearing it to the grocery store on a Saturday garnered a lot of weird looks, however. LOL. The buttons are vintage. I like the red and purple contrast.
