Red 60's dress

Added Jan 1, 2012

Berlare, Belgium






This dress is made with the pattern for the “60’s dress by Alexandra”. It was the first time for me to make a hole for a button, add a zipper in a dress, … Luckily for me the pattern I downloaded here was my size too! I made it for the occasion of New Year’s Eve.

Material Notes

some kind of wool




Garment Type

    How did the sleeves work? Do you cut 4 pieces (2 for each sleeve?) The instructions on this are so vague.

      I just cut 2 pieces sleeves (1 for each sleeve). There is no lining in the sleeves too.

    You dress is beautiful and we don’t see that it was the first time you made a buttonhole as well as putting a zipper. Well done.

    Perfect New Years Eve fabric, I reckon! Looks like a fun dress to have in the collection (also for summer without tights and some bright coloured sandals perhaps?).
