I love this 50s style with a little modernizing. The style is from November 2012 issue. The front tucks on the dress gives it a very slimming look and the high funnel collar and front slit draw the eye to the decolletage.
I modified the style by using a flare skirt that is longer in the middle front and back and is shorter at the sides. The hemline is embellished with a white lace.
The style requires a stretch wool fabric but I used stretch velvet instead because I was unable to get the wool.
Velvet is really not my thing because it is not an easy fabric to work with. Despite the challenges I am totally pleased with the look and the style.
