One of my most favoritest dresses I've ever made.  Kinda like Exene from X meets rockabilly.  Black cotton top, vintage 60s floral cotton skirt, 50s plaid cotton pockets, and tea dyed lace appliques on the bodice.  Oh, and the straps are black velvet and vintage lace with covered buttons on the back.  I'll always regret letting go of this one!







any thoughtssss?

That is SO pretty!  I love the skirt and contrasting pockets.  The lace looks gorgeous, and I love the straps and buttons.  On a side note, I also love your hair. Smiley
