I bought this vintage 1950s pattern a online and I bought the fabric from a thrift store for on $2, the fabric is not vintage. I love the beautiful colours of this fabric and how light the fabric is which is perfect for an Australian summer. The pattern is also perfect for summer, especially with the low back – the dress even has pockets! More photos on my blog!





I can’t wait to wear this cute dress now that the weather is warm and I would love to make a few more variations of it with different fabric as it is such a fun and flattering cut!

Hi, my name is Kayla and I live in Sydney, Australia. I have recently graduated from a writing/media/journalism degree. I love vintage fashion and culture. I have been sewing for over a year now and have been taught to do so by my mum. Grace Kelly is my favourite actress and style icon. I love pretty dresses, undergarments, coats, pretty things, old Hollywood actors/actresses, pin-ups, old Hollywood cinema, Dita Von Teese, cooking, reading, op-shopping, online shopping, my dogs and cat... And of course family. That is a bit about me! :) Tumblr - http://gracefullyvintage.tumblr.com/ Instagram - Gracefullyvintage Contact me: gracefullyvintage@gmail.com

gorgeous dress! i have a dress made in the same fabric – i think we got it from spotlight for full price. The backless style is very chic!

What a great dress! Don’t you just love running across fabric in the thrift shop? I just found a giant piece (like, four yards) of yellow striped taffeta for four bucks. But I digress…

I wonder how this dress would look in a knit fabric? Like, a 1970′s graphic print knit?

Oh my, how beautiful! I have a similar pattern and really want to sew it up asap, after this stunning make of yours!
