Description

I made a Sofia Dress from the Vintage 1950s issue using an old sari, to wear at a friend’s Indian wedding. The pattern showcased the details of the sari really nicely.

It was a bit of a difficult make because of the fabric and some fit issues I had.

    Beautiful! I recognize the struggle with the pattern description – I made this dress (with a few modifications) about 1.5 year ago and couldn’t figure out what the instructions said, so I just decided to ignore them (which probably unintentionally has resulted in some extra modifications haha)
