Description

I was inspired to make this retro dress after I purchased a dark blue vintage hat at an antique store. I was lucky enough to find what I thought was the perfect fabric for this dress style (Joann Fabric). The skirt is very full, but the bodice keeps a slim look to the dress. Look forward to wearing this dress and sporting the fun hat with it. Pattern Vogue #1084

Material Notes

Satin, zipper, thread and lots of hem tape (2 pkgs)

    The fabric is absolutely beautiful! And I bet the full skirt is such fun to wear. Great job!
