Description

I was inspired by this modcloth dress

I used Simplicity 2591, which was almost exactly the same, except the pattern called for a gathered skirt (which I did – I prefer a full skirt.) I added piping on the sleeves, and buttons from my vintage button stash. I originally made a pocket for the front, but it looked really strange to me – like an eye winking or something, so I took it off. I’m pretty pleased with how this came out! My blog entry for this dress may be found here
