Description

I found this green fabric in my local craft shop and loved it so much I had to make a dress out of it. The style is based on a retro pattern I came across last weekend. The original had buttons in the front. Due to the limited amount of fabric I had, I changed the style to zip closure at the back. This also meant that I had to alter the collar. I am pleased with the results

Material Notes

Green craft cotton and white shirting cotton for the collar.
