Coming Up Roses

Hello Everyone,  I am new to Sew Retro but I am super happy to find that so many other people out there share my weird obsession.  In fact there are enough of you that I don’t think I can call myself weird anymore, isn’t the internet great?

I made the pattern for this dress myself, it has a full circle skirt and the top is copied from a dress I bought at a flea market in Brooklyn which is actually I think from the 80′s, but is clearly trying to be 50′s.  So three decades, no waiting.  Also, there are pockets hiding in the sides seams.  I am staunch believer in pockets.
