Description

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.

Material Notes

Navy cotton with white polkadots. 1 × 7″ zip. Navy thread.

Difficulty

Intermediate

Charlotte from “sex and the city” was my inspiration for this.

    LOVELY! I adore this dress. It is so fun and playful, yet still conservative and classic like Charlotte. I just love it. I want to make something like this one day. The polka dots are fun, and navy & white always look fabulous together. Great work!
