Brooklyn, New Yo...
Loved this dress and I thought it would love me too. WRONG! Friends and Family seem to enjoy it but I’m not sure I’ll wear it again. Learned a lot making it though…
Original dress (McCalls 6520) had a button front and drawstring. I swapped it for a zipper (my busty self and buttons are NOT friends). Shirttail hem was bit exaggerated for effect but I underestimated my frontal length….O_O
Blue cotton twill..
multi colored kinte cloth..
brass two way zipper only ended up using it as a one way)
