A dress I made with some beautiful Asian fabric I had. I have a very vintage style and I intended to wear this dress swing dancing (which I did!). I was sort of going for a South Pacific vibe and made an obi-style belt to go with it.
Also of note! This is the first dress I ever made and the first thing I ever made from a pattern! I had been sewing for about two and a half weeks when I made that dress (I’ve been sewing for three weeks now :D).
I used upholstery faux leather vinyl for the belt! It only cost me $1.75 at Hobby Lobby. :D
