Dress no.3

A long time coming but here's part 3 of  Seville...three days three dresses.
This is the third dress which I made the day before going away, hoping for the sun! I wasn't sure I'd get to wear it but I was so lucky with the weather.

I used a vintage pattern 'Retro Butterick'  for the top of the dress and cut the skirt part myself using pleats to create fullness, and fit and of course POCKETS! I ran out of fabric for the bodice lining so used a bit of scrap spotty cotton I had at home. I used a vintage metal blue zip I'd taken out of an old dress which matched up with the blue on the fabric.

The dress fabric is from the Free Spirit design house, designed by Anna Maria Horner-Dowry called Twill Bouquet
