I used a vintage ’60s pattern, Simplicity 8201, to help create this dress. I took liberties with it, though, and changed the neckline to be more angular and interesting, and I added details like the bow and the rick-rack. Very pleased with the final result! P.S. The fabrics are vintage, too.
Bodice made from a woven cotton; skirt made from a polyester knit. Cute little vintage button and reclaimed back zipper.
