Dressed to Impress: 50s-Inspired Formal Dress

August 23, 2015

Things I love in a sewing project:

  1. Remnants
  2. Getting the pattern placement you wanted
  3. Getting the pattern placement you wanted when you only have 1.5 metres of fabric
  4. Getting a dress with a full circle skirt out of 1.5 metres of fabric
  5. Getting your ballgown for less than $40

But my favourite thing? All of these combined in the same project! My self-drafted 50s-prom-dress-inspired strapless ball gown, with full lining and a boned bodice. I wore it to a ball recently, and felt like a princess all night. I was so happy with how it turned out! 🙂

  1. As I scrolled down to see your dress, the soundtrack in my head started playing: I Could Have Danced All Night! Honestly! Lovely!
