I know i’ve been really bad about updating recently, but I finished another thing! This time I ventured into the 1950′s, with a casual polka dot dress. This was inspired by a vintage dress I saw on etsy, which has a really unique design.

The darts extend out from a center seam and are parallel to the neckline. And the sleeves are incorporated into the bodice pattern instead of being a separate piece.  

The end result is really flattering, easy to piece together, and super cute! I want to make a bunch of them now since i’m so pleased with this. The dress is made from a self drafted bodice pattern with a circle skirt bottom. I used three yards of a dotted fabric for the front layer, and three yards of broadcloth for lining. It zips up the back.
