Beautiful fun vintage dress great for making a statement. I wanted to create something I could wear for a swing dancing performance. I had leopard print fabric and red felted wool. I underlined the bodice front and back with the leopard print fabric because the wool would be too thin and not sturdy enough. I used the pattern Butterick B4790 but instead of using snaps at the front I put in velcro. At first I had sewn in the snaps but they were too weak and kept unsnapping. I’m wearing this dress to dance in and certainly did not want it to come undone during a move.
Red felted wool, leopard print cotton, double fold bias tape, one 7/8" button
