Description

A dress in a 50’ style made for my brother wedding. I wanted a simple, elegant dress but with a personnal touch. Also, I love the fashion of the 50s and the femininity of these models.
Given all at this dress.

    Everything turned out so well, the colour, the draping and the fit.

    Very pretty. I thought it was going to be for your brother too. ;) Was it a Vintage pattern? They can be so fun to use.

      Thank you! It wasn’t a vintage pattern, I used two personal patterns I assembled : one for the corset and one for the skirt circle.

    The color is beautiful! I love the crinoline! When I saw it in the Projects Gallery, I thought it had just said “A dress for my brother” lol! XD
