Bonneville Salt Flat Dress

Last month my husband and I took a second honeymoon out to the Bonneville International Speedway in Utah.  Drove the ’50 Chevy there and back from Wisconsin with no problems, 4200 miles in all.  He pegged it at 75mph while I sewed the buttons on this cotton dress.  McCalls 8019 was the perfect pattern for this easy-to-wear, day dress.  More details here at my blog.

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!

  • OMG!

    I love that print; I have a piece I’m saving to use in a 1930′s dress. I was going to do a dark blue yoke but now that I’ve seen your yellow I have to reconsider–that looks awesome!

    Also, I would kill for that car.
