I so loved working on this dress. It took a good few weeks, on and off, but I really took my time to construct it as well as I could. The fabric is a poly/cotton mix I think, with a cotton velvet collar… which isn’t as detachable as the pattern made out! The ‘vestee’ attaches to the bodice with a couple of snap fasteners and there is a side zipper. Its fully lined with facing and vestee edges, bound with bias trim. I wore it for the first time today and although its a little snug, it feels very special.
I love the challenge of a vintage pattern. My confidence grows with every garment I make and I love that I can end up with a garment that is both classic and original and a fraction of the price of any modern designer dress.
