Eos Retro Button-Up Dress

I start with my main conclusion about sewing the dress. It either must be made of thin fabric or the one who is going to wear it must have thin hips. As I kept none of these conditions, my interpretation of the dress has essential modification, I mean the absence of the gathering on the sides.
But the dress is surely worthy sewing and now, after wearing it for some time, I like it even more!!! Its only problem – it is too comfortable :-) But I guess I can live with it :-) I am very glad with my outfit despite I could spent less fabric if refused from the gatherings at once.
My tips for the sewing are here .
The jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

My fabric is pretty thick soft and dense knits. It is the same as was used for me dark blue twin-set but maybe because of the powder colour the fabric here looks like velvet.

    You look so beautiful in the dress. I’m envious of you madam. Now you’re making me want to make it so much, but I was wondering, do you think it’ll look good in cotton as well? Cause I have an African wax print fabric that I would love to make this out of or quilting fabric that I’d also want to make out of this pattern.

      I think it will look well from any soft fabric, the fabric mustn’t be thick. Otherwise the pattern must be made without gathering on the sides.
