Modern Clothing

I used McCalls M5314 as a base for this dress.  I left off the cuffs because of the pretty border on the sari fabric I used.   More of the border was used to create the ties.   I wanted to keep the border on the skirt as well so this meant pleating the skirt to the bodice rather than doing a circle skirt.  

I'm not really in love with it.  It looks too 1970's for my taste.   I was hoping for more 1950's.   I think it's more the pattern of the sari than anything else.  Still, I did sew!   And there is evidence!
