Description

I was inspired by all the exposed zippers I was seeing on commercial clothing. I don’t have a curvy figure at all, so the nip in at the waist adds some shape. I altered a dress pattern to achieve the three piece garment. I used New Look 6804, shortened it significantly, added a small casing with elastic in the back and a zipper in the front.

      Haha thank you! I’m extremely lucky; my family owns a fabric store (check out our etsy! thetinthimble.etsy.com) so I receive a lovely discount off the fabrics we carry. This one happens to be an Amy Butler print (she’s one of my favorites), but I also use a lot of Heather Bailey prints, Anna Maria Horner and Alexander Henry, not to mention all the Vintage fabrics I use as well.
