An open backed 50’s style dress. I used a vogue pattern V1102 for this. It took about 16 hours to make. There is a bow tied across the top of the back. This dress is really pretty. I wore it with red patent round toe stiletto heels and a white clutch bag. I intend to make this in another colour.
Navy cotton with white polkadots. 1 × 7″ zip. Navy thread.
Charlotte from “sex and the city” was my inspiration for this.
