I picked up this fabric from a warehouse near London, ON. It was a heavenly place, filled floor to ceiling with bolts of vintage and retro fabrics.
This eighth dress in my handmade collection features a peep hole in the back (a lovely way to showcase any ink you may have back there), closed with a brass shank button. Subtle pockets are sewn into the skirt, with the hem falling just above the knee. This is a perfect number for a day at the office, a trip to the beach, or a leisurely afternoon in the garden.
I'm not big on zippers, so this dress keeps its shape with an elastic waisband. This cut is specifically tailored for my shape, using an ever-changing pattern based on the store-bought dresses in my closet.
