I love 50’s dresses. Maybe it’s a little overdone these days but I still love them. For this dress I combined a basic dress pattern with a vintage 50’s pattern and drafted my own circle skirt piece. I found this fabric for an awesome price at Walmart. I added some boning in the side seams for a smoother look. I decided to have some of my senior pictures taken in it!
