The Teal Polka Dot Dress
Added Aug 9, 2010
New York, United...
This dress was made from 1960 Vogue Paris Original No. 1047, designed by Jacques Heim. Though the pattern suggested crepe or other drapey fabrics, I found some polka dot taffeta and thought it might work. And it did. The bodice is very fitted, and the skirt is barrel-shaped. I added a full lining and a lapped hand picked zipper.
