Description

It’s a simple 1960’s dress made from Simplicity 5398. I took these pictures after work, so I’ve been sitting in an office chair all day. I salvaged a rhinestone button from a vintage dress for the belt and used an embroidery transfer from 1949 for the shoulder embroidery. It took six hours to complete and used seven different types of floss with swarovski crystals. More at Vintage Bobbin

Material Notes

3 yards cotton, 22 invisible zipper, embroidery floss, swarovski crystal, one vintage button.
