Description

this dress is made from another vogue pattern i am slowly becoming obsessed V2960 this was a very simple pattern to follow and great results the dress fits very nice and i can’t get enough of how full the skirt is and the bright floral i love it all!! for the buttons down the front i couldn’t decide what to use so i ended up using the 1’s and 2 ’s i had in my vintage button collection my grandma left me i actually really love the youthful look that it gives the dress so thanks grandma for cutting off and saving all those old buttons:)

    The shorter length is certainly more youthful, I really like it, and the bold colours are fabulous too!

    What a vibrant and pretty summer dress — I love vintage patterns, and you made this one vintage and current at the same time. Great buttons as well — I remember my grandma’s button collection had great finds as well. Congrats — great dress:)
