For years now my dear friend Christine has made my dresses.
A couple weeks ago she taught me how to make my own.
All of the supplies came from thrift shops and consignment shops.
I started with the petticoat which is made from a bedskirt.
I added the tarten trim to match the dress.
The bodice and skirt are trimmed with black grosgain ribbon.
Vintage black buttons and lace collar complete the bodice.
The bodice is lined with an old sheet and the belt was made from a vintage belt and silver buckle.
11 yards of red tarten fabric-$6
Vintage silver buckle-$15
Sheet for lining-free
Being able to say I made the dress-priceless:)!
