Description

I started drafting this pattern in March of this year and three months later I’m rather pleased with the outcome. Since I’m not really that big on colorful, vintage-inspired dresses (although I do love them) and have circa zero of them in my closet I knew I wanted to include one in my spring SWAP. During this spring I’ve been taking a pattern construction class and this was my final exam project, so to speak.

The dress is fully lined and has an invisible zipper and a full circle skirt. Please visit my blog for more info and pictures!

    I like the pattern of the fabric and the silhouette! GREAT! the only thing, cannot see too well details on the photos (too sunny). But other than that – great! :)
