The brittle dress

ImageThis dress is made out of two different patterns. The blouse is from the vintage pattern on the left below. It’s unfortunately incomplete, but I love the look of it! I’ve made a few blouses from it before, but this got way to short so I wanted to make a dress. I took the skirt from the pattern on the right and I think the result is really good. I like the retro feeling of the fabric, and I think the print is awesome.

The fabric is a real lightweight silk, and since the waist is really slim, it broke in some strong lindy hop moves. I will need to reinforce the seams and leave more room for my belly, and perhaps use it in less acrobatic circumstancesImage
