Description

I used Butterick 5748 vintage style pattern. I left out the slits at the front & back neckline as I thought the addition of the bow at back neckline would be enough on this dress. It is fully lined in 100% poly. All the fabrics are repurposed. Only new item is zip.

Material Notes

Vintage lace, 100% poly lining
