The 40s-50s Waikiki dress

Hello everybody!!

Here in northern France the spring is almost there.

And also it is still very (too much!) cold, I had a sudden will to make me a “paradisiac island dress” !

I used a 1950s pattern from “New style” for the top, and a retro high waisted skirt pattern to make my perfect Waikiki summer dress!
