Made from McCall's 5891 from 1961. A simple yet stunning dress with a low back. I opted to line the dress with some cotton voile for modesty, so I left off the facing. Because the horse fabric was vintage I had to slim the skirt shape a little, omit the pockets and make a contrasting belt. I chose to put the bow detail on the back above the zip just to cover that little gap and made the belt bowed, because I really do think the bow is sweet. I also added horse hair braid in the hem to give a nice full skirt. I do really like this dress and I think I will make a slim skirt version. Va voom.
