Black Floral Spray Dress

I used NewLook 6224. I chose view A , and on the pattern cover this looked kinda 70s . But i was surprised at the outcome of my own dress. I feel its got a very strong 40s style, especially the sleeves ,which make me feel like an overgrown Shirley Temple ( which isnt necessarily a bad thing !) I got the fabric online ,and ran out so got more for the swooshy skirt part. Im determined to find a way to wear this as a day dress, cos I dont like having a wardrobe full of dresses that get worn once in a blue moon .

zip ,

    This is a really lovely dress and looks good on you. Very pretty fabric. Agree it looks very vintage, 1940’s.

      thanks x you should ! its a good pattern for curvy figures , cos the bodice is quite narrow under the bust ,so it shows everything to full effect lol !
