Berlare, Belgium






This dress is made with the pattern for the “60’s dress by Alexandra”. It was the first time for me to make a hole for a button, add a zipper in a dress, … Luckily for me the pattern I downloaded here was my size too! I made it for the occasion of New Year’s Eve.

Material Notes

some kind of wool




Garment Type

    How did the sleeves work? Do you cut 4 pieces (2 for each sleeve?) The instructions on this are so vague.

      I just cut 2 pieces sleeves (1 for each sleeve). There is no lining in the sleeves too.

    You dress is beautiful and we don’t see that it was the first time you made a buttonhole as well as putting a zipper. Well done.

    Perfect New Years Eve fabric, I reckon! Looks like a fun dress to have in the collection (also for summer without tights and some bright coloured sandals perhaps?).
