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.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
