A Spooky 50’s style dress

September 23, 2014

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my latest creation from a self-drafted pattern.

Given that Halloween is creeping upon us, I wanted to make something that had a little bit of a spooky charm to it.

I made this 50’s style dress with a gathered circle skirt, lace trim on the hem and pockets in the side seam!  I decided to use a facing instead of fully lining the bodice.  The fabric is a black cotton stretch sateen, because it is so comfortable!  I also made a belt to match the trim with a glitter lucite buckle.

This is my favorite design so far! I will definitely be making more with other colors and prints!
