Not my favorite decade, but I made it through!
The pattern is number 6208 – I’m unsure of the brand, as it wasn’t listed. Purchased on ebay.
The fabric was from fabric mart fabrics
My nail polish is Mr.Mint by cupcake polish. It is THE BEST!
Shoes were from DSW
As always with these pieces, in hindsight I would have done things a little differently (in addition to gathering the sleeves, I would lower the belt a bit and do more finishing work by hand).
I struggled a LOT with the belt. it was pinned and sewn on a good dozen times before I finally went with this placement. When it was lower, it caught on my hipbones and pushed the skirt up causing a break in the pleats (they folded over the belt, even when they were tacked and it was stitched down) I’m still kind of shocked about what a pain placing it was!

My name is Angela Clayton, I’m a twenty year old designer and seamstress who is currently living on Long Island, in NY.
I’ve been sewing for five years and focused on period costumes and original designs for the last three. I make costumes for fun and to expand my skill set so I can hopefully get a job in the industry someday.
