Description

I made this for a 1930s Cuban themed evening for a friend’s birthday…..but it ended up a little more 1950s than I originally planned, but no one noticed.

The pattern is the Party Dress from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing. The bodice is lined and boned and the skirt is a circle skirt. The strap is removable. The cotton is from John Lewis and the belt is just a ribbon that detaches.

I hope to add more photos later.
