Description

I was so pleased with how this project turned out! I had about two yards of this rayon blend mustard fabric, and as sometimes happens, the fabric absolutely dictated the design. I wanted this to be very vintage in shape, and the fabric worked so well toward that. LOVE!

    thank you sooo much you guys! to the ladies asking about a pattern— I don’t really use patterns, I just work from some basic bodice and skirt shapes I have cut and on hand, and then improvise from there. Much more fun than patterns if you ask me!

    Love the style. I think the mustard is perfect. It reminded me a little of a 40’s movie.

    thats fab fabric and lovely design i LOVE it to, so unusual in a way that vintage fabrics can only be, modern prints are never so surprising
