Brooklyn, New Yo...
I made this using a vintage pattern I bought on ebay. I’ve always wanted a black and yellow vintage dress like this and I finally found the right fabric. It was a little see-thru so the dress is fully lined. This is actually my first collar. I altered the pattern to make it curved and added piping. I’m amazed it came out ok. The skirt is very full. I tried to match the lace on the bottom the best I could without wasting too much fabric. The belt in the picture is Zac Posen for Target.

I used a lovely lightweight yellow fabric I found in the discount section of Joanne’s. The lining is a cotton blend. New shiny black buttons, but an old yellow coated metal zipper.
