Pintuck Dress, Take Two
A little while ago I wrote about the Pintuck Dress that I have been working on--designing, drafting, sewing, the whole deal. I decided that Vintage May was a great excuse to make another version of the dress. The design had been inspired by many of the sweet, simple dresses of the past, and a vintage sheet as fabric would complete the look.
I made a few changes to the pattern this time around. This version has gathered cap sleeves, and rather than a zipper in the back, I added a button placket. I'm really pleased with both changes, although I need to make a few minor adjustments to some of the details.
I'm still working on developing this as a pattern for sale, so stay tuned! This has been such a learning process for me, everything from drafting to digitizing to figuring out how it all pieces together. It uses a part of my brain that I don't get to use every day as a stay-at-home-mom, and I love the challenge.
