New Years Eve Dress and Senior Pictures.

I wanted to make something very dramatic for New Years Eve. I was thinking Zooey Deschanel goes to a Christmas party in the ’50s. These pictures are taken a few months later in the spring for my college graduation. The dress is made from the bodice of McCalls P257 and the skirt is just a regular old rectangle skirt lined with a petticoat thing that I kind of just made up :)

And just for fun there is a picture of my grandmother Ellen standing next to her brand new Cadillac convertible (powder blue, with fins of course) in 1953.

That dress is a dream. Your grandmother was stylin with the cute summery out fit and the Caddy.
