    Thank you everyone!! You’re right, the 1950s styles were so flattering to a woman’s body.. definitely for us who have larger hips! The fabric is vintage and I was so nervous to cut it, since I knew I couldn’t buy more if I made a mistake! Luckily it all worked out :)

    Really really pretty! Wow – didn’t the 50s have it right for feminine form?
