Another dress made up of vintage fabric in a vintage pattern! I was inspired by a dress Betty Draper wore in season 2 of Mad Men, to a picnic with her family.
This fitted, full-skirted dress is from the 1950s made of beautiful vintage acetate floral fabric. It’s underlined,with a hand-picked zipper and a waist stay. I documented several of the tricky construction steps and wrote up tutorials on the zipper and the waist stay, if you’re interested!
