It’s not my birthday and I’m not having a party, but wearing this dress makes me feel like a precocious girl itching to get to her party and do the mashed potato. It’s made using with McCalls 6120 from 1961 (?). The bow belt is made from leftover fabric from my Hollywood Starlet Dress. More pics and info on putting it together on my blog :)
A thick textured cotton for the dress, gabardine for the bow.
