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.

The full pleated circle skirt is made from Organic Cotton and the sweetheart fitted bodice with petite cap sleeves is made from re-purposed cotton with a vintage lace overlay.
This dress is sustainable and eco friendly!
