Derby Dress

I knew I wanted to make a dress for my friend Chelsey's annual derby party, but I just couldn't narrow down a pattern and fabric. I saw this neon orange fabric and fell in love! I still wasn't sure on a pattern, but I ended up combining two patterns.

I used McCall's 6842 for the skirt and vintage Simplicity 7321 for the keyhole back bodice. I found the Simplicity pattern on Etsy.

I did have a little difficulty with the bodice. The pattern shows buttons at the shoulders, but I wanted it sewn together. It's a little tricky to get it on, but it works!

It wasn't possible to find a zipper to match, so white had to work!
