I'm sewing things and publish them on my blog but forget them to publish them here.

This dress is sewn from a vintage fabric (almost 40years old) and the pattern is from Burda nov2007-107A
The pattern fit very good on me, i didn't need to alter anything.
I used it with my yellow wide elastic belt
What do you think?

This is really pretty! Weren't you afraid to cut into that vintage fabric? I have 5 yards of beautiful upholstery fabric from my grandmother's attic, and I am terrified to cut it in case I mess it up!

love it all! You did an amazing job sewing that dress and it does fit you perfectly. I think that the belt just tops it off wonderfully. YOur hair shoes etc, all goes! I love the retro feel! Bravo

Six dollars?? That's amazing. How many yards of fabric did it take to make that dress?
