My Birthday Dress

For my birthday this year I decided to make a 50s/60s styled dress with full skirt. I also made a petticoat to go underneath. For more details, check out my blog, Orchids in May.

About the author: Hi! My name is Steph, during the day I’m a mechanical engineer, but one of my favourite hobbies is sewing. I’ve been sewing for about 6 or so years now & I spend most of my spare time sewing. The things I enjoy making the most are probably the most frivolous things, pretty dresses & evening gowns, but there are some practical things that I enjoy making, like tailored jackets. Lately I’ve really been enjoying learning about vintage techniques & couture techniques, & applying them in what I make. I also keep a blog, you can find it here: orchidsinmay.com
