The Lola Dress was created utilizing a vintage pattern intended for a Gunne Sax dress. I modified the pattern a bit: shortened the length of the skirt & sleeves, used a patterned fabric at the skirt sides & sash, and added the patterned-fabric detailing to the sleeves. These changes shifted this little number from a Victorian style dress to something that makes me think of the 40’s and 50’s with a touch of the Rock-A-Billy look =)
Cotton fabric, cotton thread, zipper and a smattering of buttons.
