1960s Wiggle Dress – Inspired by The Hour

September 30, 2013


I’m obsessed with The Hour, an incredible show set int the 1960s, and this is the first dress (hopefully of many!) that I’ll be recreating from the show.

The inspiration:

This is a heavyweight cotton fabric with a fun lace print. I used Bluegingerdoll’s Billie Jean pattern for the dress.

It was originally an off-the-shoulder dress which I modified so I could wear a regular bra with it. I also added a larger vent so I could walk easier and faster.

This was such a quick sew and it turned out so well! You can read more and see more pictures on my blog.
