I got this great vintage fabric on Ebay. I used a vintage pattern as well. It had a back zipper, but I found the fabric had enough stretch to eliminate it. I felt it needed a little something else so I added some studs on the sleeves. They actually came off a sweater I bought from Forever 21 that started falling apart immediately. The studs themselves actually seem to be of pretty good quality. I sewed and knotted each one on individually so they wouldn’t snap off when the fabric stretched like they did on the sweater. It actually seems to give the dress a little bit of shape and structure when wearing it.
