Description

I wanted to make a sort of 50ies-inspired dress, but shorter to make it more modern. I found this flower-patterned fabric that I loved. It has a v-neck in the back, boat-neck in the front, and closes with a zipper on the side. I did not use a pattern.

    Really cute dress! I usually steer very clear of florals, but this looks quite fetching with the dress!

    I have a 50’s pattern that looks just like this except for the length. Great job!
