I think this must have been my last dress for this winter. We didn’t really have much of a winter here and it already felt like spring when I went outside to take these pictures.
I knew I wanted to make a 1950′s style dress and I wanted to show off this fabric. I don’t often work with such bold plaid, so it took me some time to pluck up my courage and to develop a good idea for this fabric. In the end, I designed this bodice which is shaped with pleats instead of darts and made a circle skirt.
Those buttons are functional (and have bound buttonholes) and there is also a short blind zipper at center back. And pockets in the skirt side seams.
