This is what I made for myself to go to the 50s festival. The top is from dress 116 from burdastyle 06/2011 which I made it a little longer. The skirt is from burdastyle young fashion pattern 8147.
I really love this dress and it also looks nice without the petticoat undernaeth.
On the picture you can`t see the petticoat, which is red and made of some lining fabric and a lot of tulle. I had to learn that tulle is quite difficult to handle but I somehow managed it in time.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
