1950’s Dress

July 25, 2013

I finally finished my dress and had a sunny day to take some pictures.

This is made from pattern Vogue Vintage 8789. It was very easy to make, I bought a two layer petticoat for underneath and wow am I pleased with it. I used very soft cotton in blue floral and it really does work well with the dress.

Here is a close up shot of the button detail on the shoulders.

Now to go to a tea party….

  1. It looks like you did a great job on the shoulder detail! It also looks so perfect with the petticoat, awesome length.

    I had considered making this dress for a (now called-off) wedding I was to attend in September. Your creation may have just inspired me to get started on that 🙂 Thanks!
