Vintage 50’s dress


This is something I worked on last week, in when I needed a bit of a break from scrapbooking. I love how it turned out, but as it is a little small for me, I have to have Edwina model it for me. She doesn’t mind. She says it is her favorite dress yet, and she was excited when I told her she could keep it. That’s the thing about those vintage patterns – they only come in one size, and they run REALLY small (this pattern was supposedly size 12!). So now I am working at adjusting the pattern to make it again ’cause I really loved the dress!

    Wonderful! I'm a sucker for white cuffs–I'm adding them to a dress right now. And I love the pleats in the skirt!

    Trina,

    It's so cute!! I love the fabric you chose. Somehow aqua seems really 50s-ish. 😉 Are you going to sell it since it's too small for you? By the way, what is the pattern you used?

    That's simply lovely. The contrast looks wonderful, especially against that green fabric. Excellent work! Aren't vintage patterns so much fun?

    It is so pretty! I have that same fabric, and was planning on making a dress from a vintage pattern with it, too!
