Red White & Blue Dress

Sewing again.

I absolutely love how this this dress turned out!

I made it without a pattern. It's just rectangles sewn together with a yoke. I made the bias bits for the straps from the same fabric.

My mom gave me the fabric and the lace ruffle trim came from a bag of stuff I bought at a thrift shop some time ago.

The trim was in a bag full of the most wonderful finds. In addition to this lace were vintage buttons, rick rack, a bodkin and tons of other stuff. I think I paid about $4 for the whole bag. Some of the trim was from Wright's and had a price tag of 45 cents. Can you imagine?

By the way, my very talented sister made the art doll in this picture.
