I recently completed work on another 50s style sundress using the same bodice pattern I used for a dress I made in June (details are here). I just loved the shape of the bodice so much I had to make another! This time I swapped out a full, gathered skirt for a straight/pencil one, and used some bright red linen and white bias binding for contrast. I love how it turned out–like something I’d pluck from a rack of vintage clothes at a shop!
