I designed, drafted, and sewed this dress myself for a school project. I was inspired by ornate picture frames and wanted to frame the back and neckline. I found this vintage flocked dotted swiss gingham at a local flea market and decided it would be perfect for a summer dress. The dress is fully lined (my first time) and I’m very proud of the fit and the construction.
