The Marin Symphony is having their annual Wine Auction & Dinner next week, so it is time to finish a new dress! (There is really nothing like a deadline to motivate the creative process.)
I added a cotton lining to the skirt which helps with the vintage silhouette. A petticoat will be worn with the finished dress, but I decided to add some extra swing to the hemline.
Horsehair braid was stitched to the cotton lining since the rayon fabric is far too lightweight to handle the braid.
Since I have polka dots on the brain, this fabulous vintage advertisement jumped out at me while I was perusing Pinterest. The two frocks have a similar flavor, right?!
My dress is almost finished - I just need to make a matching belt . . . and decide on accessories!
And remember that Sew Indie Month is almost over, so make sure to link your finished Dressed to the Nines project to this post by June 4th! Happy sewing, everyone!
