Garlands of Summer || Sewing Project

As I said in my last post- I recently finished my Butterick B6018 dress, and now I'm ready to show it to you- and with a surprise at the end!

Materials I used: flower patterned cotton from my local fabric store (4 metres of it), some cream colored cotton, 5 buttons I could cover in fabric, one cream invisible zipper and cream colored thread.

Level: I'd say average. With a lining it would be harder, but I think it is worth it (mine is unlined).

Size adjustment: I made it in size 12, but adjusted the waist to be smaller.

Would I make it again? Definitely! But this time lined, It has such a 50s feel to it!

Other comments: I can't raise my hands more than half height! I wonder if it is suppose to be, or I did something wrong. Something to think about for next time...

My lovely friend and photographer Veronica was nice enough to take all the photos (and the surprise☺), and so the rest of the post is dedicated to her, and her gorgeous vintage dress!

I wore my new dress to the theatre with Nadav (we watched The Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht), and I got a few compliments. One of them was- "You look like in WWII era!".

dress: handmade || shoes: Modcloth (no longer available,in black and white, similar 1 / 2) ||
gloves: Into the Woods flash sale || purse: antique market || lipstick: Revlon Fire&Ice
