A new dress! This is my second dress based on Sewing Vintage Modern Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress. I am glad that finally I finished it and reduced the amount of my stash.
For this dress, I only used the dress bodice pattern and instead of using straight gathered skirt from the original pattern, I used pleated skirt pattern from my stash. I also changed the side zipper to the middle back.
The process of making this dress is very simple and enjoyable. The instructions from the book are very easy to follow and I definitely will make another project based on this pattern.
Please feel free to head over my blog for more details and pictures, http://velvetribbonsew.blogspot.com/2013/07/sewing-vintage-modern-polka-dot-dress.html
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
