Pin-up dress from Burda 2/96

I love Pin-up dresses and 50’s style, and when I got back to sewing I made quite a few, with some adaptations. This was the first, and I think I might have actually stayed true to the original pattern for a change..
It’s dress no. 202 from the 2/96 issue.

Pictures were taken outside an Independence-day party by my dear friend Tom Raz.

      Thank you!
      I don’t know. I have the original magazine that someone just gave away..
      But internet shops are filled with retro patterns (and basically, all you need is the top, the skirt is a simple square-skirt).

      Thank you! Especially if it can spin well. A spinning dress would put a smile on my face ever since I was a kid :)
