Roses Dress

December 27, 2014

Hi everyone! My name is Eleanor and this is my first post on WeSewRetro. I am Dutch but currently living in sunny South Africa. I have been sewing for a couple of years now and love wearing and sewing clothes with a vintage feel.

This dress is one of my favourite recent makes. The bodice is from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing, the Sultry Sheath Dress. I combined it with a half circle skirt.

I made this for no particular reason but then an opportunity to wear it presented itself when I went with my husband for a work dinner. I say that like I was dressed appropriately, but I was terribly overdressed as everyone else was in jeans. Didn’t stop me though, I love wearing this dress!2014-12-19 09.25.12
