i made this dress from one very big vintage house dress
i cut old dress in half
and used bottom part for skirt of my new dress
for the bodice
i used pattern from burda magazine 3/2011, mod. 101
old dress had front closing with buttons
i saved the buttons, but only as embellishment
(dress closes with zipper on the left side)
i also saved pockets from previous dress
see more on my blog

Material Notes

vintage dress (unknown fabric), boning, light blue cotton for bodice lining

    my favourite part of this outfit is the contrast of the soft blue and your fiery hair!

    beautiful dress, great fabric print, I love the buttons on the front. You’re so creative and fearless! Taking dresses apart and remaking them…

      thank you for your lovely words, keren.. i don’t think i’m that fearless – it made my job easier actually, ’cause skirt was hemmed and done already

    I like it with the plain blue belt in the waist and the bodice is nice.
