1950s Inspired Pocket Dress

Roanoke, Indiana...






This dress is more of a summer dress than a winter dress, but for some reason I always make summer clothes in the winter, and winter clothes in the summer. I need to learn how to switch that, because I was freezing during this photo shoot! haha.
I hand drafted the pattern using my own measurements. It’s made from cotton fabric and is fully lined with an invisible zipper in the back. Like in almost all of my dresses there are hidden pockets on the side. I also placed horizontal pleats on the hemline just to give a small detail. I hope you like you :)

    Excellent hidden pocket tutorial. I can’t believe you’re only 18. You’ve got lots of talent. Keep at it!
