Description

This dress makes me wish for the warmer weather..

I made it using the same pattern as my blue floral dress but with short sleeves. This shape is so feminine and definitely vintage-inspired.

The striped fabric is something I found at a local market, it is comfortable but stiff, which is perfect for holding the shape of this dress and the full skirt. The bodice is shaped with 16 darts! (8 for outer fabric, and 8 for cotton lining) And of course, I added a little lace collar. I’m sure people are sweeter to you when wearing a cute collar :)

    For some weird reason, this dress reminds me of Ms. Lovett (from Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd”)

    (It’s a compliment, haha, you look GORGEOUS).

    So cute! Reminds me of very old photos of vacations at the sea, where people often had navy and white striped dresses. And I think I will have to try the collar thing one day!

    so cute and pretty, I love simple looking clothes and dresses that still have some special details like lace collar or interesting fabric!! I love the way the sripes go and you look simply adorable:)

    This is so cute! I love the way the striped fabric runs horizontally around the hem… an interesting touch.
