This is a very eco-friendly dress as I made it from some old curtains. Wahoo.
It has a high boat neck and low scooped back. The dress fastens with a centre back zip and button and the bodice is fully lined. The waist is emphasises with the black piping, which makes it very flattering and the VERY full skirt (more than a circle) is very vintage-esque and great fun to swish in!
There is a version of this dress for sale in my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/listing/128578930/1950s-1960s-vintage-full-skirted-dress?ref=shop_home_active
