My mom made me this dress for my dance recital that was in May we danced to hand jive from grease so we all needed 50’s dresses i really liked the dress it was fun to wear and easy to dance in our dance was really fast and the dress was fantastic and it is something that i hope to wear again! The red petticoat that is underneath the dress i all ready had but i would say the puffier the better………sorry i only have the one photo my sister took more…. you can see them here on her Flicker
