NYE 08/09 50's Style Dress

The black and white print is a stretch cotton and the white inserts and the corsage are a mix poly which is the ends of the Ikea fabric I used in my two tone top. The Corsage was made on the evening it self as a last finishing touch, I was not sure I was going to use it but I am glad I did. The red belt was made with the excess elastic I had left over from my Empire Line Dress and I also wore a layered petticoat to give the dress a full look.

The night I went to was The Enterprise Chalk Farm Jamboree which was a 50’s themed night with music from the 50‘s and 60‘s .

Material Notes

This is my NYE 08/09 Dress: a cotton and polyester combination of fabrics.
