I wanted to put a little bit of spring in my wardrobe, so I went with this sleeveless number, a 50's mail order pattern that I picked up on Etsy.
I had to expand the pattern quite a bit, as always, since I will never have a 28" waist... And while trying to save money I ended up buying only 2 1/2 yards of fabric instead of 3. So I did make quite a few mistakes, but in the end they didn't even matter!
To dress things up a bit I put just a few lazy daisies on the collar. The greenery was done with satin and stem stitch, and the centers of the flowers are French knots.
Shoes: Payless, old standbys, I've had them for years.
Belt: Tractor supply
Necklace: Vintage 80's- 90's, costume pearls were my mom's.
This dress has to be one of my favourites that I've made. And I'll definitely be making this pattern again.
