50s style dress #2

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Short Dress Link to website or photo www.lekala.co/short-dress.html What are you most proud of? That when I made this dress a 2nd time, it still looks good and wasn't just a fluke. I definitely need more. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure firm. As this is a princess line, try on for bust sewing. No 2 boobs are the same and you don't want bust wrinkle at the seams.

What you will need

  • 2m of cotton I got from the Sallies for $1.50
  • 30cm dress zip

The dress link is just under the photo (Pattern Info - 'Short Dress' link). I really want to make this in solid deep red and crochet myself a black lace wrap with it for my OHs work Christmas dinner.
