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!
More on the blog here, plus plenty of posts on the making of this dress!
