Made using a BurdaStyle dress pattern for the bodice, and a McCall's dress pattern from 1955 for the skirt.

I love this Kat! In fact it's like you read my mind. I've been thinking about putting a similar shaped skirt to yours (complete with pockets too.) with that bodice for ages! Your dress looks exactly as I had imagined mine. Now I'll have to get to it. Love the apple print fabric, red shoes and belt.

I too have banned myself from buying more fabric.. but today a kind family member has off loaded an entire garbage bag on me. oh.. what to do with it all! (and where the heck will I store it in the meantime)

Kat this is such a great dress! I love how you limited your fabric selection, I should try that!

Invisible zippers are an interesting challenge, glad you got it all worked out. It usually takes me about three trys before everything lines up properly, now I just laugh at myself.

gorgeous dress - the fit looks ideal. And you are not the only one who didn't know that trick with the invisible zippers. Thanks for detailing it.

Love the retro apple print and the silhouette of the dress. Again, thanks for the detailed write-up.
