I needed a special dress for my birthday party. I was turning 50…I was born in the 50’s…I had just scored, on eBay, a lot of real vintage ties from the 50’s for seven dollars and (you guessed it) 50 cents. Hence, this dress was born.
The corset shaped bodice is made of overlapped vintage rayon neckties. The rest of the dress is polyester.
Butterick 6582 for the skirt and back. I created the sleeves and bodice.
