Bonneville Salt Flat Dress

September 10, 2013

Last month my husband and I took a second honeymoon out to the Bonneville International Speedway in Utah.  Drove the ’50 Chevy there and back from Wisconsin with no problems, 4200 miles in all.  He pegged it at 75mph while I sewed the buttons on this cotton dress.  McCalls 8019 was the perfect pattern for this easy-to-wear, day dress.  More details here at my blog.

  1. OMG!

    I love that print; I have a piece I’m saving to use in a 1930’s dress. I was going to do a dark blue yoke but now that I’ve seen your yellow I have to reconsider–that looks awesome!

    Also, I would kill for that car.
