Grace Kelly

June 21, 2012

Hi everyone,

I’m new to We Sew Retro (having been an occasional contributor to the old site). My blog focuses on refashioning, but I’d love to share some of my more retro-influenced projects with you.

I thought you might like to see this dress I made a while back in the style of Grace Kelly. Here’s the inspiration picture:

And here’s my version, which I made using a self-drafted pattern:

You can read all about it, including a description of the pattern drafting, at my blog, Charity Shop Chic.

  1. Wow, thanks everyone for the lovely comments. I am so pleased you like the dress. I had been wanting to make this for some time and I was really happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more refashioned vintage goodness!
