Autumn 1950s inspired dress
Added Nov 27, 2010
I found this cotton fabric which reminded me of autumn, but the colours didn’t inspire me on their on, so I bought some reddish brown cotton to match the flowers and added a border at the hem and sleeves and made a detachable belt to go with it. Just practising… :-)
The bodice is a standard princess seam bodice and the skirt is gathered at the waist (about 3 metres). The dress is fully lined (almost reversible).
Hope you like it.
Cotton fabric, polyester mix lining, zip and thread.
