Vintage style dress for 2013 Tessuti Gridlock competition

I made this dress for the Tessuti Gridlock competition. The fabric had a bit of stretch to it so the weight of the dress pulled it out of shape, however this was remedied with a waist stay. Turn ups at the arm add a bit of contrast. I like the dress, but i’ve no idea where i would wear it!

Material Notes

Tessuti Gridlock, poly cotton

    Very stylish! I can’t see how this garment would be a problem to wear. If it was in my clothes closet I would use it as a beautiful every-day dress for work and school as often as I could. Don’t let it be stowed away in your wardrobe! :)

      Thankyou. I find sometimes my makes stay in my wardrobe until i figure out how to wear them before they become used every day. So silly!

    Looks very lovely on you. Good match of the pattern and fabric and yellow lace embellishes the outfit a lot.
