50s circle star print dress with vintage sunnies

September 15, 2013

I made this 50s dress recently for a wedding. Although you can’t see the arms – it is sleeveless. I lined the bodice but left the skirt unlined so that I can wear it with a nice full petticoat when the urge takes me 🙂 Fortunately the fabric width was 146cm making it wide enough for a circle.

Wearing a dress that you’ve made yourself always feel kind of special – and retro inspired always feels so feminine.

The rest of my outfit is vintage inspired – clutch bag and a Vivienne Westwood blazer and pair of heels with genuine Dior sunnies that I cherish!

Hope you like and pop to my blog if you fancy a look through some more of my latest makes!
