Flamingo Dress

I’ve been working on this dress for what feels like ages! I really didn’t expect it to be such a struggle; apparently the planets were aligned against me on this one. I had to ditch my vintage shirtwaist pattern due to some insurmountable fitting issues, but I was able to use it as a jumping off point for altering a new pattern to have the same vintage details. Overall its really cute, and I love how well the matching belt turned out. 

For the long version about sewing the dress and inspiration for it, head over to my blog!

  • Gosh. What great photography. I’m heading over to your blog now.

  • Dress. Superb. You. Clever.

    Well done! I’m on the shirtdress train myself at the moment.

    And you didn’t even have to eat a bunch of wee aquatic beasties!*

    *(which is, of course, how flamingoes get their colour.)

  • LOVE that! Very talented you are!

  • I am so impressed! I’d love more details on how you made/acquired the matching belt. I’d like to do this for some future vintage projects.

  • That belt is PERFECT! Nice job!
