I made this dress few weeks ago. It was supposed to be polka dotted but I couldn’t find the material like that. The initial idea was to catch the spirit of women 50-60 years ago, when most of them looked like ladies with some dignity and not like cheap sluts. I adore vintage dresses, combined with psychobilly music :)
So, I used an old pattern I’ve made long time ago, tight corsage-like. I have few tops like that, some have straps, some only one… And they all have a different print and don’t look too similar for anyone to notice. Skirt-part is almost 360 degrees. Inside I have sewn on both bra cups (I can’t stand to have my nipples visible) that keep my jewels on the place. Deep zipper is placed on the back of the dress.
I used a satin band to wrap the headband and around my neck is an old necklace made of wooden beads. I like to wear it with entomology books and bloody red cardigan :)
Special thanks for my foto-fella who made couple of hundred photos that make my smile spontaneous everytime I look at them. Debeli, nevjerojatan si :)
Cotton for the dress. Satin red band for headband. Wood for the beads around my neck. British pale skin included.
