retro tweed dress






sorry for the serious look on my face. i had a small argument with my husband while we were taking pictures:(
im satisfied with how this mini jumper came out. i started using the pattern that i purchased from etsy, the vintage pattern from 1968, but decided to drastically modify it. took off sleeve, change the shape of the skirt, made button closure instead of zipper, and added pocket. oh, also shorten the length. it is available for purchase here:)

I like the dress, but with invisible zipper instead of using buttons and love the fact that it can be wear with legging and jeans....I like the fabric too, what kind of fabric is it?

Thank you Karen! Such an encouragement!

Hi Nomaliza, this is a wool fabric, like tweed, and the label said it's 70% wool and 30% silk.
