Floral Dress

Hello you lovely people!

I recently re-discovered one of my long forgotten dresses in my wardrobe.

I’m pretty sure I’ve sewn this last year in summer but never got around to wear it :/

The dress is made with a cotton blend and fully lined, pattern was made by me and you can button on the straps in the back. The zip is one sided and in the back.

I really hope you like it :)

Have a lovely rest of the week!

I’m on holiday for the rest of the week so I hope I will be able to squeeze in some serious sewing work :D

Hello there, I'm Reika, 22, from Germany and I'm a trained seamstress, cosplayer, retro and vintage lover and fabric hoarder ;D Unfortunately I blog in German so I thought it'd be a good idea to share my sewing projects on here, as I always try out old/vintage/reproduction patterns and would like to share my opinion on them :)

So charming, and it suits you very well. Summer in a nutshell!

So incredibly pretty. Did you use a pattern for this one?


Reika May 28, 2014 at 5:21 pm

Thank you :D And no… well technically yes, but I drafted the pattern myself, so it’s not up for sale :/ Sorry!

And thank you all for your kind comments :D I’m very glad you like the dress!

Very pretty! The gathered top of the dress reminds me of the silver lame’ prom dress on Peggy Sue Got Married. : )
