Member Model Challenge Vintage Fifties Dress

Added Sep 22, 2017

As soon as my sister informed me about the Member Model Challenge, I knew I had to sew the dress. Choosing the right fabric was not so easy. I did not want to copy the original dress, although I love the green color. To my great excitement, I found the perfect dark blue denim. The dress was sewn quite fast. There were no major adjustments necessary. At the end the most difficult part was to select the four photographs.

    Really like your version. Denim was actually my first thought, but everyone in my family was against it -:) Wonderful pictures, especially the bicycle one!

      I love it too sew and wear vintage, but we live in 2017 so I tried to give it a modern touch.
