Sigh, I want to wear it today.

Had the day off from work for president's day, so I finished this dress I worked on over the weekend.


close up on the bodice, I'm not sure if you can tell it's a marigold yellow with tiny white polka dots.


Here it is on my homemade dress dummy, my friends call it DoppelAnna. That's me in the corner. (That's me in the spotlight..... losin my religion....uhh...)



And a shot of the big vintage green buttons down the back, sorry I'm awkwardly clicking the button behind my back to take the picture


And on me, boobylicious

I forgot to say how I made it: The skirt and bodice are based on Simplicity 5095, which I believe is a pattern from 1972. I use it a lot for the skirt part of garments. I shortened it be several inches.
The bodice is loosely based on McCall's M5292, I added some gathering at the center front and also added the little collar and did buttons down the back instead of a zipper.

I'll second that- i love making dresses and skirts, but hardly ever get to wear them. This is what I get for working in a machine shop... If everyone around here keeps posting things this pretty, i will have to get a new job, just so I can dress up!
