Description

This is a 1950s-inspired summer dress, pattern-drafted and made by me in a reproduction 1950s cotton print. I drafted the bodice pattern using the japanese Pattern Magic book by Tomoko Nakamichi. More details on my blog: http://goldfinchandeagle.blogspot.co.uk/

    Great dress! I would have never thought of using a pattern magic to make a 50´s dress. Genius!
