1940s style dress

May 8, 2010

Hello friends!
Here is my new dress! It’s actually a refashion, but I forgot to take photos of the hideous original. It reminds me of something I’d wear on my Hawaiian vacation in the 40s. Unfortunately it’s coming up to winter in Australia, so I’m not going to be able to wear it for another 6 months 🙁

More of my creations on my blog.

  1. Thank you, Vivian! I haven't done anything special with the bodice ties. I just took the corners and tied them together!

  2. I'm a huge fan of your creations, Lily! It's no surprise to see you've made another BEAUTIFUL dress! 🙂 The shape fits you so well, and the ties are so cute.

  3. SO CUTE! If you can't wear it for six months, come on over to AZ and sweat with us here. At least you'd look gorgeous in that dress, lol!
