The third dress of mom's new wardrobe! It's made with a deep red/orange dotted swiss. The eyelet border made it perfect for a dress. She even found a way to make the adorable bolero to match. Again, it was made using a vintage pattern and it fits her so cute!
As I told you all last week, mom got me inspired to start working on my summer wardrobe as well. So, this weekend I oiled my machine and sewed away! Here is the inspiration for my first piece.
And here is my version!
I completely altered a New Look dress pattern to get what I wanted and I LOVE it! Thank goodness for mom's private collection of zippers, though. I didn't realize it was going to be so hard to find a separating metal zipper. Anyway, this is hopefully one of my many summer pieces to come.
