I had hoped to complete this dress to ring in the New Year, but instead had found myself sewing the zipper to all layers of the dress. I came back to it, like you come back to your stand-by New Year’s resolutions in January, and finished it this weekend. It’s based off a vintage Vogue pattern I got in a pattern swap, and was made with a set of curtains. The fabric is black on one side and green on the other; I had to make it reversible as I couldn’t bear to choose one side over the other.
