Description

I made this dress from a vintage maternity pattern, Butterick 5573, of my mom’s (no, I’m not pregnant!). The slightly voluminous, empire waist look matches current trends well, I thought. I LOVE the final results.

    It’s a stylish dress-GREAT colour!- and I love that you have taken the trouble to do such an original and evocative photoshoot to go with it.
