vintage dresses make me stand up straight and be a lady

April 10, 2008

I made both the dress and cropped jacket of this lovely 1959 Simplicity pattern. With a nipped in waist and soft pleats I have to stand up straight and hold my stomach in to show the dress off in all its glory, but it’s so worth it……

I did make the matching belt as shown on the pattern envelope, but the print was too busy for it too be noticeable, so instead I’ve worn it here with a plain belt. I think this is the first time I’ve ever made all the pieces of a pattern.
More details can be seen on my blog.
