This dress is made from a vintage pattern for Halloween.  The pattern, purchased from ebay, was originally sold via a weekly newspaper insert that advertised a sewing pattern one could send away to obtain.  The postage to mail this pattern was 1 cent!  This dress was made from "vintage" fabric (well about 30 year old fabric) and actually had a vintage zipper and buttons used.  The Cording on the pocket, neck and sleeves was an enhancement and the placket down the front was added to enhance button placement.  The look was a party winner!
