Description

I liked this pattern very much first time I saw it, and found yellow poplin and black stretch jersey in my stash. I had to shorten the zipper, and lengthen the skirt about 10 cm, and I have hand stitched the hem. I had to sew with both yellow and black tread, but I’m happy with the outcome :)

    Appropiate colors for the buzy bee you are. Very flattering on you. Must have a lot of zippers at home? or you buy only when you need???

      Ha-ha! Yeah, I’m collecting everything, so I have a lot of choice in my stash! ;-) I also like sewing retro, it’s a lot of fun, and I have inherited dresses from my mum.

    Awesome dress!! Great colour combination. When I was shopping, I saw some tops with the same front zipper, and really liked them. Seeing this made up, has made my day !!!
