I had this fabric for a while, however did not quite had the weather to inspire me.
Well, the wait is over, I managed to transform the fabric into a quick summer, bold dress for a 50s style birthday party.
The cotton is very good quality and absolutely lovely to work with. I would recommend some fabrics with some body for maximum effect. I used a 1956 retro Butterick pattern and added the bias red hemming for a bold, nice touch.
The dress features side concealed zip, 6 panel skirt, silk crepe lined bodice and butterfly wings.
Worn with a crinoline, Moschino Love tote and M&S patent shoes.
100% cotton fabric in red polka dots 2.5 m , crepe satin (1/2 m) and good quality bias tape.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
