This is my entry for `BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern Contest 2013` – Option Three: Create your own variation project using one or more master pattern(s) and/or variation project(s) from the BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern book.
This adorable 50s style knee length dress is perfect for a retro wedding with sky- heels or a cocktail party paired with a vintage fur stole!
