So after seeing Sewaholics beautiful version of the Vintage simplicity pattern 3965 I began my hunt for this retro pattern. After checking many websites….it magically appeared on ebay..already cut out….in my exact measurements…..the only one I’ve found!
I found the fabric at joannes and new i had a perfect combination! I made this specifically for A wedding on March 25th. It took place in a beautiful botanical garden……I love spring!
I also handpicked the zipper(like Tasia) for the first time ever after reading her tutorial. The finish is amazing!!!!

    It’s gorgeous!! Your photos are so lovely, and I love the summery, retro look of your dress. Beautiful work! (And yay for the hand-picked zipper – my all-time favourite way to do zippers!)
