Close-up of the buttons:)
I made this dress off a girls pattern I found online. I often like to just look at old patterns and fashion plates, honestly I can look at them for hours picking the construction apart in my head figuring out how I can recreate them.
The skirt hem is hand sewn, with a lace bias tape underneath, which is really a nice way to do hems...I need to use tape more often.
This is what it looked like before
