I started making the Pencil Skirt from Burda but wasn’t happy with how the skirt was looking, Yeah! You guessed it, another dress to the ever expanding wardrobe!!
I rummaged through my vast vintage pattern collection and decided on vogue 5769 for the bodice!
I’ve had quite a love relationship with Ponte fabric (yes, I did go a bit overboard and buy every colour that was available) still have some blue & green fabric left in my stash!! More combos coming!
Ponte Di Roma 1 1/2 mtrs
Very long zipper
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
