I wanted the dress to feel like it belonged with the fabric so I used a vintage-feeling, sort of 1940′s inspired pattern (New Look 6309) for the bodice and collar, and then added turned up sleeves to echo the peter pan collar.
I only had a yard of the patterned fabric I created, and had to use it sparingly– which was fine because I really wanted to incorporate peach. So I used a nice peach cotton for the top, and to tie it in to the bottom I added dark gray piping to make the collar and cuffs pop.
Thanks again for having me Delia!
