Going Out in Vintage Style

I made this dress to attend my cousin’s wedding a week ago. I used a vintage Simplicity pattern from 1958, but I had to make a lot of modifications as the fabric I chose has some stretch content, plus the proportions of the pattern didn’t, um, correspond with my own proportions!

    this is so lovely – the colour works wonderfully on you. i love the cut, and the stretch content makes all the difference in this dress.

    Is there a kick pleat in the back, as this dress looks like it would be impossible to walk in? Love the colour on you, it certainly stands out.

    The color goes very well with the vintage dress style and you as well. Good job. Love the hairstyle. Looks like the Carwash or Grease style.
