Water Lily 50’s

Here is a dress I just finished, and, I guess a tour of my bathroom.  I made the pattern for this myself from a dress I have from the 50’s.  It turned out pretty darn close to the original.  It was actually a pretty doable process if anyone is contemplating it, but it defintely helps to know what certain pieces should look like so you can get the right shape on the bust etc.  I love this fabric, and the colours are much brighter in real life. I have some better pictures on my blog.  I now also wish I had put on some makeup or worn one of those hipster animal masks. Ah well live and learn.

    I never would have guessed this used to be a sarong. Love the lilies at the hem.

  • Nice fabric and as Heapha said, beautiful bathroom! I’m jealous! lol

    And no need for make-up- you’ve got a perfectly lovely face! (Though an animal mask may have given me the giggles)
