Description

This dress kind of turned out like an updated version of a 50’s rockabilly style. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I made it a bit longer to make up for the fact that it was strapless, but I don’t really like strapless dresses anyway so I might add straps sometime. It was a fun, one-afternoon project. I had fun trying to make the pictures look old too [:

Material Notes

Cotton, white on the top and printed black and white on the bottom. I used some leftover material from the buttercup bag for the black lining on the top.
