Vintage 50s Style Day Dress

This dress was in my WIP pile for at least 4 years. I moved recently and rediscovered it.
I hadn’t yet attached the skirt and bodice, so I pinned it to my dress form to see if I wanted to bother
finishing it.
Last week, one of my alterations client spotted it and he thought it was lovely and that it would look
great on his wife. He brought her over for a fitting and I pinned it on her. He totally had a crush. :)

Material Notes

Between you and me, it’s made of drapery fabric.

      Thanks, it’s a vintage pattern from the 50’s . I’ll have to find it again in my stash to get the maker and pattern number. I’ll let you know when I do.
