I did not create this dress. It is a thrift store find and defiantly home-made. I put it on and it choked me, the flowers in the front form a target and it looked like I had it on backwards, so… here is what I DID DO: I turned this retro dress around and pulled up the zipper as far as my boobs aloud it. Yay! By the way this is not the first time I have worn dresses backwards. You know those dresses with the buttoned backs? Well, I like having the buttons in the front and I don’t like being choked either. : ) I’m glad I can share this awesome dress with you. I am in love with it!
100 % Wool for the bottom part
Cotton blend for the top. (It’s really smooth and very soft)
