Vintage dress inspired design

September 30, 2010

Here is a dress designed by all by myself. I just love the full skirt dresses from the late 50’s/early 60’s and instead of using my vintage patterns I decided to put my own drafting skills to the test. The result is a dress with a high neckline, knee-long gathered skirt and 3/4 sleeves.

The skirt is quite full on its own but I am wearing a petticoat in the picture to accenturate the shape. Please stop by my blog for more pictures!
