1950s Princess Line Sundress

I made this 1950s princess line sundress from a vintage mail order pattern and decided accessories were in order. The addition of a bolero and belt makes it look more like late 1930s to me so I don’t know exactly what is going on here, but I really really like it. There is a little handbag too, which you can see on my blog. The bag and bolero were lined with scrap linen. Many more details here.
