This dress is made of some beautiful stained glass corderoy fabric I bought from a local estate sale. It has a super soft rayon challis lining on the bodice. The dress has an empire waist, a center back zipper, and falls to the knee and is hemed with lace hem tape. I originally made it for myself (I really love the fabric), but I’m really more of a “black on black” kind of girl. Though lovely, it just too much color for me. I used a 1950s Retro Simplicity pattern.
