Description

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.

    Fabulous dress! And keep wearing it in the supermarket, those people (probably wearing crocs and sweatpants) were wishing they had a dress like yours!

    alright. this is my favorite dress because of the 3/4 sleeves (very feminine) and the pleats. I LOVE how the pleats stop at the collar and kudos on making purple absolutely work.

    I love it! I’ve been looking at that pattern and wondering if I should try—looks like I need to!

    Had to go see the other pics on your blog! This is a beautifully made dress! I admire your pleating work! Something I haven’t been inclined to try! The best to you in the New Year!

    Gorgeous dress! It is a sweet shape and the colour adds to that a bold personality – particularly the buttons ;)
