Kinda retro...

Belgrade, Serbia






Patrones No. 269, #36 (Lasserre) pattern.

I altered the dress – narrowed down the bodice in the waist area and added back darts. Also, I cropped the bodice a bit, due to my short torso. I altered the skirt part – the original pattern has 4 waist pleats on front and 4 on the back side. I made one big pleat on each side, I thought it looked better on me that way.

The dress is fully lined.

I used very cheap cotton, it cost me approx. 5 euros!

Material Notes

Fashion fabric: cotton with print

Lining, belt and collar: thin white cotton





Garment Type
Classic, Romantic, Vintage

    That is just beautiful; the shape really suits you. And I love that you made the whole outfit for so cheap! Hopefully I will one day be able to take advantage of inexpensive fabrics with such success!
