I found the old pattern for this dress at my favorite thrift store. I followed the pattern, but once the dress was done I decided it needed some changes. It’s meant to tie at the back, but instead I kept the v-neck and added elastic at the waist. I also took the sides in a bit and added some vintage buttons to accent the princess sleeves.
Blue cotton, elastic, and two blue buttons from my grandma’s old sewing supplies.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
