The Jim Jones Revue Stunt Dress

in Vintage Sewing

I made a Stunt Dress to go see The Jim Jones Revue in concert… I am ready to rock!
This dress feels so good! The cotton is heavenly, I really like the fit, the dress has pockets (Erin would be proud of me! She loves pockets and stunt dresses!) and though the fabric is loud and not age appropriate, I might even wear it in real life because I don’t care what people think. I might even make another one next summer.
This is the shot where you see what I was saying about the fit. Just the right amount of ease, can be worn from morning to night. I love it.
I also posted a little tutorial on how to bag this sort of dress. If you are interested, come and visit.

What! Not age appropriate! Of course it's age appropriate. You look great in the dress — what a fun dress to wear.
