This is a red polka dot 1950’s style dress. It has a circle skirt and the top is converted from a self made bustier pattern. I added centre front ruching and halter neck straps. The petticoat is actually from Vivien of Holloway so can’t take credit for that! Ideal for eating ice-cream Sundaes and walking hand in hand down the promenade.
