Vintage pattern, new blue dress

Added Jan 14, 2009

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.

Material Notes

Blue cotton, elastic, and two blue buttons from my grandma’s old sewing supplies.
