I have got to say, this dress was worth the effort. I made it from the Vintage Vogue Model 1954 pattern and such beautiful fabric I found at JoAnn’s on clearance. I used vintage red buttons, and a crinoline I took out of one of my vintage 1950’s ballgowns, which I pinned up, and then lined the dress with.
I spent all of last night hand sewing a blind hem and also hand sewing stitches into the sleeves until it was perfect. I probably spent about four days altogether working on this lovely project. The pattern was so easy!
I adore this dress! Although, I do feel a little like a Betty Draper cupcake. :/
