For Christmas someone bought me a beautiful Butterick pattern from 1959. Trouble is, I had nothing to wear it to. But then prom came up and I finally had an excuse to make it
The fabric is called Tulips and its a Batik fabric. Underneath the dress, I sewed in a peti-coat. I made two cummberbunds, one in green which is in the picture and one orange one, the same colour as the bolero. Around the edges of the bolero I embroidered this random little line of flowery things.
