Rust flounce dress

I made this dress back in February and I’ve worn it many times since. This is a very confortable dress with an A-line skirt. Even if it’s a petite pattern I had to shortened it by at least 2 inches. I also redraw the darts a bit lower. The fabric is a nice wool crepe bought from King’s Textiles in Toronto. The colour is more rust IRL.

Material Notes

Wool crepe and bemberg rayon lining
