In 50s clothing, clothing, dresses on 13 May, 2011 at 10:41 am


isn’t this fabric wonderful? it’s pure cotton, amazing to work with, has enough weight to hold it’s shape in the classic 50s skirt, and it’s adorable. however, it is not cheap. hence, this dress was made for a friend of mine.

the design of the dress is very simple; top section to empire so that it could be tapered in, with a basic bust dart, a midriff section to slightly below the waist, and then full circle skirt. i can’t quite remember the debate on the straps, but once i saw the design of two pieces and then a tie at the shoulder, we decided that this was the way to go.
