A dress made from a vintage pattern.
I’ve made a couple of changes but I might make the original version, too because I like how it looks on the envelope.
I put elastic at the back and also sewed in a zipper which was really fiddly because at first I didn’t want to include one and I had already done the smocking. It’s not perfect, but ok.
On the hem I used a zigzag stitch for decoration and the collar is topstiched (I’ve also changed its shape a bit).
The sleeves are selfdrafted.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
