Natty's Vintage Inspired Party Dress

Added Aug 3, 2009

by nattyjane

Berkeley, Califo...






This dress was inspired by the various vintage fashion blogs that I follow daily. The top of this dress is similar to my Red Dress, but I changed it to a lower waist line and added some darts. The skirt portion is just a few gathered rectangles. The back has four gold buttons to match with the gold in the print of the fabric. I’m really excited about this dress and can’t wait to find the perfect occasion to debut it.

Material Notes

Cotton from Scrap in San Francisco, and four gold buttons.

    I love it… super-cute! It reminds me of my mum’s dresses from the 1950’s (that my grandmother made for her) that I fell in love with and wore when I was around 7yrs old… so you definitely got that vintage-feel right!
