Description

I made this teal silk party dress in two days, just in time for a Christmas Party!
This fitted, full-skirted dress is from a 1950s pattern, made of beautiful teal silk dupioni fabric. It’s underlined and fully lined, with a hand-picked zipper and lace-trimmed lining.

More on the blog here!
Plus here’s a tutorial on doing a lace-trimmed lining!
