Vintage Dress


Before I went on vacation a couple of weeks ago, I had a plan to make some clothes for myself instead of the usual dresses for my girls (although I made dresses for them, too). I wanted to make a top (check, see here), a skirt (check, see here), pants (still to make) and two dresses. The first dress I made a couple of weeks ago (so check, see here) and the second dress I finished today! This vintage pattern I saw in the july issue of Burda. I only changed some little things here and there in the contrasting lines. The dress I wanted to make initially was one with busks and things, but when I saw this one, I must have this one too. The one with the busks can wait till the next summer. Or maybe I'll make that one anyway in a couple of weeks. We'll see.

  22. Stunning, love the cut, and looks so well sewn. I agree about sewing for yourself, I always end up sewing for my kids and not me!
