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.

I'm an old-fashioned girl with an interest in all things historical. I love sewing, living history, swing dancing and wearing vintage clothing. In my spare time I write poetry and tinker on the piano. I enjoy being as thrifty in my sewing as possible and I hope you gain inspiration from the projects posted here. :) You can find my sewing blog at: www.retrospectsewing.blogspot.com.
