in 1950s,Dresses,Vintage Sewing

It’s not everyday that a girl has an occasion to get all dressed up so when that occasion came my way, I jumped on the chance to make a fabulous vintage evening dress.

I choose to use Advance 7015. I believe this pattern is from 1955 as that date was hand written on the pattern envelope.

 I used some dark blue special occasion fabric from my stash for the dress and a band of beaded trim salvaged off of an old belt for the trim.


And because I’m me, I loaded up on the bling. Bling is so fun!

There are tons more photos of this dress over on my blog here and here. Do you like dressing up or do you prefer more casual styles?

Lovely job! You look so glamorous!
I love the fancy dresses but have little occasion to wear them so most of my sewing is dressy casual.
