This dress makes me happy!!! Happy enough to mow the lawn :)I was inspired by a robins egg and added a little retro fun twist. I did not use a pattern which made it tough, most of the fabric is thrifted and I did a lot of hand sewing. It is completely lined and has hot pink tulle. I added pockets and on the top has two eco friendly buttons on each side to get into the dress easier. I did have a bit of trouble on closing the back; there are about 5 different snaps!!! But it works. I made this dress for my going away party but it didn’t get done in time. I also made a detachable bow to put where ever I want it. In the photo it is in the back. I did have a slight issue with the tailoring.. let me know what you think.
thrifted robins blue fabric and tan/brown linen, polyester fun colored lining, hot pink tulle, snaps, thread, hand sewing, eco buttons, lime green lace seam binding, and of course love :)
