1950s summer dress with gloves

You’re going to see me in this dress a lot this summer! I wanted a summer dress that had a vintage feel to it, and to make the look even more authentic i made a pair of matching gloves that really braught it together. I’m more than happy with this! (You can find my pattern for the gloves here )

    Gorgeous! I’m a beginner so I will shelve this till I get more skills, but I LOVE it. I would need a shrug to cover up some tattoos, anyone have a good combo? i can also knit (though I’m at the scarves/socks/hats/wristwarmer phase now).

    Really beautiful. Fantastic fit. And the colour really suits you. It goes without saying that the matching gloves are the icing on the cake. And I would indeed be interested if you had a pattern to share. :-)

    very pretty and I love the coordinating gloves. Did you use a pattern for making the gloves? If so, would you mind telling me which?
