Pretty In Pink

This dress was a challenge as I needed to stay true to me but also be somewhat risque. Therefore the completely lined bodice and unlined skirt. Some changes were made as I had to modify parts to put all the pieces together. I wish I had made the hostess apron but it was my grandmother’s and she made it.


The basis of the pattern was Simplicity 3823.

I have always loved retro fashions from the 40's to the 60's. My body is a great 50's model. I am excited to have someplace to post my pics and ideas. Thanks.
