Oh yes, I’ve fallen for rockabilly 50s fashion… All I can think of now is sweet little dresses with cupcakes, polka dots, cherries…

    I brought black and white polka dot fabric this morning and am debating what to do with it. This is divine!!

      Thanks!!! Feel free to be inspired… It is simply a shirt-dress without sleeves. I should have published more pictures, but you can see a picture with more details of the top at www.frkbustad.blogspot.com :)

    I adore 40’s and 50’s fashion. Was this a commercial pattern that you used ? Or an old pattern ?

      I based the dress on Burda 9/2006 (no. 107), but I modified it from being a shirt-dress to this one. I’ve been looking for vintage patterns as well, but they’re often expensive and not my size… I will try out some I’ve bought though, and see how it goes.

    It’s gorgeous! And I agree, the 50’s produced some great fashion, I love the femininity of it all. I love the way you styled it too!
