Description

This is my first dress yo! I was planning on making a swinging 60’s floral dress (a la Betty Draper), but hemmed it about 2 inches too short so it’s a little more Sally Draper. I used New Look pattern #6799 and really concentrated on making the inside as pretty as the outside. I did a full review of the pattern at Sewing Pattern review

    I too love this fabric. Although it can be expensive, decor fabrics have amazing prints.
