Hot! If It Has To Be the 70s Dress

IMG_9671This dress was made on sort of a dare after a co-worker of mine said I only seemed to make dresses from the 1950s. While it isn't exactly my style, it's acceptable.

The Facts

Fabric: Found at an estate sale for $1
Pattern: n/a
First worn: October 2009
Wear again? Yeah, but the pointed collars stress me out.

  1. I love the cloth you chose for this dress! I think it’s super, super cute (even with the pointy collar). Would love to see pictures of you wearing it too!

  2. Yes, I think this is my favorite. I love the pattern!

  3. LOVE this! Which is surprising to me, because I’m typically a classic shirtwaist kind of girl.
