i went through a distinct rockabilly phase, back when my hair was bettie page black. this is a very simple shirt dress made from McCall’s 4769 and a black and white polka dotted cotton print. it has a button up front, a seam at the waist and darts on the bodice. I made the skirt a little fuller than the pattern dictated, and added in a peter pan collar with a pearl piping that really gives it a little something extra around the face. in these pictures i’m wearing a vintage red crinoline underneath, adding a pop of colour to my otherwise colourless pallet. very cute dress, but these days i just don’t feel so into the whole rockabilly scene. i still wear it on occassion…
cotton cotton cotton. comfortable, convenient, cool. some kind of bamboo or linen would work just as good.
